Sign up for walk to help children's hospices
9:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
TWO children’s hospices have asked for volunteers to walk their way to raising much-needed funds.
Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices for children and young people have begun organising the 2014 Clarendon Way Walk.
The event, which is one of the charity’s most successful fundraisers, sees more than 1,000 people taking to the Clarendon Way to walk the 26 miles between Winchester and Salisbury cathedrals.
In previous years, more than £100,000 has been raised, which goes towards helping the hospices provide life-changing services.
Naomi House and Jacksplace offer support and care to children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
Based in Sutton Scotney, the charity offers families respite breaks and palliative care. Families are welcome to stay in the hospice with their children, where the constant support of the care team gives them the chance to enjoy some valuable time together as a family.
Next year’s walk will take place on Sunday, 1 June.
The marathon-length walk already has its first names signed up to participate and Naomi House wants to invite as many people as possible to get involved.
There is also the option to tackle a shorter 12-mile route, which commences in the village of Broughton and finishes at the same point at Salisbury Cathedral.
Early bird registration will cost £10 for adults and £7.50 for children up until 31 December 2013. This price includes a Naomi House and Jacksplace T-shirt and a medal upon completion.
To register for the event, visit naomihouse.org.uk or call 01972 760060.
