Staff and volunteers at St David’s Hospice are gearing up for the ultimate fundraising challenge.

Next year, twenty brave trekkers will embark on an opportunity of a lifetime by taking part in a nine-day trekking adventure across The Great Wall of China.

The overseas challenge is the first of its kind being organised by the Hospice and the response so far has been phenomenal raising lots of interesting questions such as ‘when is it?’ ‘How much do I need to raise in sponsorship?’ ‘Do I need to be super fit?’

To answer all these questions, St David’s Hospice is inviting supporters to an open evening on Tuesday 12th March at 6:30 pm at the Hospice on Abbey Rd, Llandudno. [Click here to find out more]

It will be a fun and detailed presentation about the challenge, as well as a Q&A session, costs of the trek and some fundraising hints and tips.  Chinese light bites will also be offered on the evening.

Head of Fundraising, Margaret Hollings said:

“The trip itself will take place between May 8th and 16th 2020.  Not only does this trek offer you the chance to conquer one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but it is also a chance to cement your place in history as you place a brick in the wall as part of the rebuilding process.

You could create memories for a lifetime by being part of something great and supporting your favourite charity at the same time.”

The challenge is open to everybody. Whether you have a passion for living life to the full and want to overcome a challenge, enjoy fundraising and supporting the Hospice or would like to make a difference locally this trip is for you.

If you are thinking about this challenge but don’t know of anyone else who might sign up – don’t worry as most people register solo and it is a fantastic way of meeting new lifelong friends!

To register your attendance at the open evening on Tuesday 12 March 2019, please call the Fundraising Office on 01492 873664 or email
