If you’re looking for the opportunity to do something truly amazing and support an invaluable local cause, then this is your chance.
The Winsford hospice is looking for individuals to take part in a London-Paris cycle ride from 2-6 July, and a Mount Kilimanjaro trek from 9-18 October in 2014.
St Luke’s Senior Fundraising Events Co-ordinator Nicola Jepson explains: “The London to Paris charity cycle is a great experience and a fabulous challenge.
“Cycling through beautiful English Villages and into the stunning countryside of rural France you’ll pass historical landmarks and famous battlefields from World War 1 until you reach Paris, undoubtedly one of the most magical places on earth.
“Cycling over 5 days you will cover nearly 500km from the heart of London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
“A challenge like this is not just about distances covered and start and finishing points, the bike ride is about group effort, friendship and more importantly spirit.
“The physical side of the trip is sometimes a worry for people who may not have cycled much before signing up or who believe themselves to be out of shape but with some ground work covered at home before the trip, each ride is designed to ensure that everyone can take part and everyone completes what they started.”
Come cycle with St Luke’s. The minimum sponsorship for the London to Paris cycle ride is £1450.
Then from 9-18 October, 2014, fundraisers are being invited to join the Mount Kilimanjaro Trek challenge - a unique and unforgettable experience across some of the world’s most spell-binding scenery.
Nicola commented: “Towering over the sandy plains of Tanzania, stands Mount Kilimanjaro – the World’s tallest free- standing mountain.
“This breath-taking trek will guide you up the tranquil Machame route. Here you will trek through deep forest, home to spectacular wildlife stretching up to moorland and onwards towards glaciers before reaching Uhuru Peak.
“We cannot begin to explain the amazing sights guaranteed on this adventure of a lifetime. This is undoubtedly an amazing opportunity for participants, all in aid of the hospice.”
The minimum fundraising total for the Kilimanjaro Trek challenge is £3950.
