Hospice ropes people in to fundraising challenge

St. Joseph’s Hospice (Jospice) is on the lookout for anyone with a head for heights to join them for a very special abseil down one of Liverpool’s most famous landmarks.

On Saturday 6th August, supporters of the hospice, including their two new community fundraisers Clare Maher and Laura Smith, will abseil 150ft down Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral to raise money for the hospice, which provides long-term, specialised end of life care for patients with a wide range of life-limiting conditions.

The abseil starts at 7pm and two ropes will be available so that friends and family members can even abseil together.
Penny Hamer, Director of Income Generation at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “This is a jaw-dropping challenge that will give you the best imaginable view of the world-famous Liverpool skyline.

“We need to raise £6,500 every day to keep our services running and what better way to spend a summers evening than taking on this amazing challenge while raising vital funds for the hospice.”

Registration costs £25 and the minimum sponsorship required is £100. Places are extremely limited so early booking is advised.

To book your place, please call Clare on 0151 932 6035 or email clare.maher@jospice.org.uk or you can book online at www.facebook.com/JospiceUK/
