Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice are calling you to join them on a fun packed weekend trekking along the stunning Jurassic Coast, make friends, see beautiful scenery and raise money for a really worthwhile cause. 


Marion Haynes, 56, Sue Ryder Fundraising Volunteer Support, and Wendy Murgatroyd, 51, Sue Ryder Individual Giving Fundraiser have signed up to take part personally and are looking to the local community to join them.

Wendy from Lucey Close, Tilehurst, comments “I have always wanted to see the scenery along the Jurassic Coast, it has been on my Bucket List of things to do for a number of years now so when I heard that we were organising a bespoke trek this September, I signed up immediately. I’m not only looking forward to making new friends and seeing the beautiful scenery, I am also looking forward to raising money for Sue Ryder. Having joined the fundraising team in August 2011 and meeting many of our patients, I know first hand how amazing the care is.”

Marion Haynes, Froxfield Avenue, Reading, decided to sign up to the trek, along with the challenge to loose 3 stone earlier this year.  “I really love walking and I can’t wait to enjoy the spectacular scenery on the coastal path between Durdle Door and Swanage. So far I have lost nearly 2 stone with a healthy eating and exercise plan, which includes walking, visiting the gym and enjoying zumba, and I want to achieve my target by 21 September when I take on the challenge!  Having the date in my diary certainly inspires me to keep on working on getting a healthier life and feeling so much better about myself!”


Marion continues “Not only do I love working as Fundraising Volunteer Support with all the volunteers who kindly support us, I have personal experience of the wonderful care and support which the staff gave to my Brother, John, and to me and my family, and I am proud to be walking, in memory of him, and to raise funds to continue this excellent care.


Both Wendy and Marion are calling you to join them “we will have such fun walking together and spurring each other on!”


By joining Sue Ryder’s team of trekkers, you will be helping them to support more people with long-term and life limiting illnesses including Cancer and MS within Berks, Bucks & Oxon.
