Challenge 25 is an adventurous weekend cycle and trek on Arran, covering 42 miles by bike from Brodick to Lochranza on day 1, and trekking 847m to the summit of Goatfell on day 2.

st-vincents-hospiceSt Vincent’s Hospice provides specialist care for those living with cancer and other life limiting illnesses. Their services are available to all, totally free of charge, thanks to the generosity of local communities.

Fundraiser Ashley Moran said “the money raised through Challenge 25 will go directly to caring for local patients and their families.

“It’s a great opportunity to tick some new years’ resolutions off your list; get fit, have a fabulous weekend completing an exciting new challenge while supporting St Vincent’s Hospice in our special 25th Anniversary year.

I can’t think of a better way to raise vital funds for the Hospice and give yourself a new challenge for 2013 – so what are you waiting for? Be part of it!.”

An Information Evening is being held on Feb 21st at 6.30pm at St Vincent’s Hospice, with coffee and cake and the opportunity to pick up your free t-shirt.

All transport, meals and accommodation are provided on the weekend and no expensive gear is required, just your own bike and walking shoes.

St Vincent’s Hospice has a full 25th anniversary programme of celebrations and has launched a £1m appeal to maintain and develop its crucial services. For more info email info@svh.co.uk or visit www.svh.co.uk.
