St Luke’s is challenging supporters to do something exhilarating this summer to raise vital funds for the Hospice.  Brave supporters have the chance to see Liverpool from a different angle as they complete a 150ft freefall abseil at Liverpool Cathedral on 6th August. If that isn’t enough of an adrenaline rush, thrill seekers also have the opportunity to take a leap of faith and take on a skydive on 10th September, falling 10,000 feet in aid of Hospice care.

Yvonne Singh, who is a Complementary Therapist at St Luke’s, has signed up for the abseil after doing the Firewalk for St Luke’s last year. “I wanted to push myself even further. I love being in my comfort zone, but I’m very excited to try something completely different. It’s a quick and easy way to raise money for St Luke’s, which is such a good cause. My husband and children will be there to cheer me on!”

Melissa Newland, Senior Events Fundraiser, said, “We are thrilled to be able to offer these challenges this year! It’s a real opportunity for people to try something new, have a great time, and raise money for vital Hospice care at the same time.”

Full training is provided for both of these challenges so no experience is necessary; places are limited. For more information visit www.stlukes-hospice.co.uk/event/challenge-events/ or call Melissa on 01606 555815.

St Luke’s is a charity funded by voluntary contributions; we have to raise £8,600 each day to enable the Hospice to provide free care and support to local people.
