Calling all daredevils!!!
(12th July 2011)
Calling all daredevils, The Hospice of St Francis has launched another daredevil fundraising challenge and is looking for volunteers to literally 'go over the top for the hospice!' In this case it means abseiling 100 foot down one of the highest buildings in Hemel Hempstead, all for a good cause of course!
Dixons Retail has kindly offered their Head Office building in Maylands Avenue as a platform for this stunt taking place on Sunday 25th September 2011. Registration costs just £25 with a minimum sponsorship requirement of just £100 - that's just 10 friends sponsoring you £10 each - simple! (Under 18's need to pay just £20 to register and raise a minimum of £50).
Community Fundraiser Emma Day commented: "This is an amazing opportunity to set yourself a personal challenge whilst raising money for a fantastic local cause. If you have ever wanted to do something daring then now is the time to grasp the opportunity!"
She continued: "Last year we hosted this event for the first time and were thrilled with the amount of people that took part. It raised more than £15,500 and this year we are hoping to smash that target! So if you are planning a family day out with a difference, a team building event or simply fancy a challenge before the year is out, then sign up!"
All the money raised will go towards helping patients and their families coping with a life limiting illness. The Hospice of St Francis provides a range of services in the hospice and beyond, for patients and families living with life-limiting illness in Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempsted, St Albans and surrounding villages. To sign up or for further information call 01442 869555 or email email@example.com. You can also register online by going to www.stfrancis.org.uk/abseil2011reg
