There will also be plenty of opportunities to help raise funds for the hospice in our exclusive auction and luxury raffle, full of prizes and surprises. Tickets are £48 and dress code for the evening is black tie. For more information and to book tickets please contact Karen Milne on 01505 705635 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of our brand new events for this year is ‘Challenge 25’; an exclusive weekend cycle and trek on the Isle of Arran. One of the first people to sign up for this was our very own Director of Fundraising & Communications Karen Milne. She has jumped at the chance to get her cycling gear on and put pedal to the metal in aid of St Vincent’s Hospice.
“After such a long, dark winter I needed something to get me motivated and out into the fresh air; I thought Challenge 25 was a great excuse to get back on my bike and shake the dust off my walking boots. Signing up for Challenge 25 is a great way to get exercising, attempt a new challenge and raise funds for local patients and their families.
Karen’s enthusiasm has been inspiring lots of supporters to sign up to take part in this fantastic challenge! Places are starting to fill up so if you would like to take part please visit www.svh.co.uk or email email@example.com for an information pack and booking form.
