New Challenges for 2022 Set by Katharine House Hospice

Katharine House Hospice are calling on local supporters to help raise funds by taking part in an exciting range of challenges in 2022! All the challenges offer experiences of a lifetime and include a tandem Skydive, Snowdon Sunrise Walk and a charity Mountain Bike Ride around Kilimanjaro!

#TeamKHH Skydivers will take the plunge from 10,000 feet above Nottingham Airfield on 18 June. They’ll enjoy the exhilaration and adrenaline rush of a tandem skydive – the easiest and most popular form of skydive – while a qualified British Parachute Association Instructor does all the hard work.

On 17 July participants of the Snowdon Sunrise Walk will experience a climb to Wales’ highest peak through relative darkness with the support of qualified Mountain Guides. As they ascend the darkness will lift in time to relax and enjoy a spectacular sunrise over Snowdonia, before they return to Llanberis for a hearty and well deserved Welsh breakfast!

Those who opt for the Kilimanjaro Mountain Bike Challenge will ride 286km over 5 days across the open African savannah and into the rainforest. There will be an opportunity to spot wildlife such as giraffes, gazelles and zebra and spend a night in a Masai village!

KHH Community and Partnership Fundraiser Andrea Pugh said:

“We are delighted to offer a range of exciting challenges this year. We really do have something for everyone – whether they’re looking for the ultimate thrill and adrenaline rush, to mark an event, new start or special memory or an exotic and physically challenging experience.”

Vicky Clarke from Stafford based Insurance Company Bayliss and Cooke said:

“I am delighted to be taking part in the Skydive challenge to support the hospice and help them raise funds for their patients and families. They are a very worthy cause and touch the lives of so many local people.”

Katharine House Hospice provides free care and support for adults and their families who are coping with progressive illness across Mid-Staffordshire. It relies upon the kindness of the local community to help generate over 75% of the funds needed to run its vital range of services.
