We have been busy behind the scenes of late preparing for our own celebrations-  ahead of the Hospice’s 20th anniversary this year, we’re marking the occasion with an invitation to the trip of a lifetime!

Join us on our 2020 China Challenge – a 9-day trek across the Great Wall of China in association with GLOBAL ADVENTURE CHALLENGES

As you trek along this iconic Wonder of the World, you’ll cross ancient watchtowers and battlement stations to witness magnificent panoramas of luscious, rolling green hills as far as the eye can see!

You’ll climb the iconic Heavenly Ladder and help rebuild part of the
wall, a unique exclusive to Global Adventure Challenges, whilst immersing ourselves in stunning scenery and Chinese culture.

You’ll also have the opportunity to explore Beijing, China’s capital where
ancient and modern meet, on a free day so why not visit iconic landmarks such as the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the famous Tiananmen Square to name a few!

Welsh 3000’s Challenge
Sep 12 all-day

To register your interest and to find out more please email Margaret.hollings@stdavidshospice.org.uk


The Welsh 3000’s is one of Wales’ most iconic mountain challenges. On Saturday 12 September 2020 St David’s Hospice participants will brave the night and day to summit all 15 of Snowdonia’s 3000ft peaks within a 24 hour period – and no accompanying transport.

The number of miles undertaken on this challenge usually totals between 24 and 30 depending upon the chosen route and should only be undertaken by experienced mountain walkers. The terrain is very rocky, and both uphill and downhill and should not be underestimated.

The registration fee to take part is £150 which includes all safety aspects of the event and will be run in conjunction with Anelu Aim Higher employing highly qualified mountain leaders. For more information please visit www.mountain-hill-courses.co.uk

You do not need to have extensive knowledge about the 15 Snowdonia peaks in terms of route planning but you must be fit enough to be able to take part. For this reason, a compulsory mountain day is included with entry to monitor progress and ensure that participants are fully prepared to endure the challenge before the day itself.
