WING walking, skydiving, endurance mountaineering, and trekking through the Sahara desert are just a few of the thrilling activities a Cheshire hospice is offering to would-be fundraisers in 2023.

But it is not all just for adrenaline junkies.

There are plenty of family friendly options too, including dog agility trial Woof Mudder; an Indian-style coloured powder throwing fun run, Colour Rush; and a new Twilight Walk that debuts this year and has already seen record sign-ups.

Jane Thompson, head of events at the hospice, said: "St Luke’s Hospice is again creating a fantastic calendar of events for 2023.  

"Spread across mid and South Cheshire, there is an opportunity for everyone to join in the challenges or events and to support patient care at St Luke’s.

"St Luke’s works hard to fundraise more than £3 milion each year to allow our clinical and spiritual teams to deliver the very best of care in our community.

"Joining in allows you to enjoy some great experiences such as the Delamere Forest Twilight Walk or the new Hartford Colour Rush, or something more challenging such as trekking the Sahara Desert or Wing Walking strapped to a light aircraft!"

St Luke's Hospice in Winsford needs to raise £8,152 every day to go on providing free end-of-life care for up to 150 local people each week.

Jane added: "We simply couldn’t run our hospice without the fantastic support of our community and offering them the chance to do it in a fun way has got to be a’ win win’ hasn’t it?"
