St Helena Hospice shares its latest news and plans with thebestof Colchester...
It’s going to be a busy few months coming up for the fundraising team here at St Helena Hospice and we’d like to share some of our upcoming events with you.
We’ve just launched our exciting new challenge, SANDMAN, which takes place on Saturday 1st March 2014. This is a hardcore five mile assault course, including a freezing sea swim and 2.5 mile run back to base. Taking place along the Mersea coast, SANDMAN is not a race, it’s a challenge. It’s about facing your fears, and really pushing yourself to your limits. Working in teams of up to 10 people, it’s mind over matter and above all...fun!
Registration is just £25 and you’ll need to raise a minimum of £25, so if fancy a challenge, go to our website or call the events team on 01206 791740.

Also in March, there’s the Colchester Half Marathon on Sunday 16th. St Helena Hospice has been lucky enough to be chosen as the charity beneficiary, with the proceeds of the race donated to us. We are looking for 100 people who are running the Marathon to join #TEAM100. Runners who are part of #TEAM100 are encouraged to raise £100 for the Hospice.
On 27th January, we will be launching our annual Pier to Pier Walk, which is taking place on Sunday 27th April. This popular, family friendly event is a 7 mile walk from Clacton to Walton Pier, or you have the option to walk there and back for a challenging 14 mile walk.
The walk is open to everyone and entry is free, but we do ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £25 for the Hospice. For more information, please visit the St Helena Hospice website or contact the events team on 01206 791740.
These are just a few of our many events that we’ve got going on in the next few months. To find out more about these events and others, please click here.
