384 pairs of feet, accompanied by those of numerous four legged friends, have truly walked wonders this year at April’s Hospice to Hospice Walk.
Record number of Springhill Hospice supporters, 384, put one foot in front of the other on a 7.25 mile circuit, taking a pit stop at Dr Kershaw’s in Oldham and have this year smashed all fundraising records, raising £18,000 so far!
“Astounded isn’t the word” said Community Fundraiser Lillie Winterbottom. “Our fundraising record for this event was £11,500, so £18,000, with money still coming, is phenomenal! Thank you to everyone involved, all those fantastic walkers and their sponsors, our volunteers, staff and of course, the team at Dr Kershaw’s in Oldham”.
The cost of running Springhill Hospice is £8,200 per day and with £7 out of every £10 need, being raised by the community, this amount of money will keep the Hospice doors open and caring for patients and their families for over 2 full days.
