Willen Hospice invites locals to take up fundraising challenges abroad

Willen Hospice is inviting local people interested in taking their fundraising abroad to join them at information evenings they have planned this month.

The sessions will be an opportunity to find out more about the Hospice’s MK to Paris cycle ride and the exciting Borneo Jungle Adventure, both taking place next year.

The exciting Borneo Adventure takes place between 11 and 20 October and will see intrepid adventurers take a ten day trek through the rainforest, where they will camp in remote villages, see amazing wildlife and even meet orangutans.

The open evening will take place on Tuesday 23 October at the Winter Gardens outside Bannatyne’s Health Club, Central Milton Keynes, 6.30pm. To find out more about the challenge, visit http://www.willen-hospice.org.uk/borneo

For those looking for an adventure a little closer to home, the Hospice has teamed up with Cycle4Good to arrange a cycling challenge that will take riders from MK to Paris between 26 –29 June 2019. It is ideal for cyclists of all abilities, whether a keen rider or beginner, so anyone can take part and help raise vital funds for Willen Hospice.

The open evening will take place on Monday 29 October at The Caldecotte pub next to Caldecotte Lake, 7pm. To find out more about the challenge, visit http://www.willen-hospice.org.uk/mktoparis

Both evenings will provide further information, fundraising advice and the chance to meet the team. There is no need to book, simply turn up.

Challenges Fundraiser Chris Gregg, said: “These are both amazing challenges and a chance to see two stunning countries.

“They are a great way to challenge yourself, meet new people and most importantly, raise money for your local Hospice.

“We would love to see anyone who’s interested at our open evenings so we can explain more.”

Both challenges are open to anyone over 18 with a good level of fitness. To find out more about the adventure, including costs and sponsorship requirements, please visit http://www.willen-hospice.org.uk/borneo or http://www.willen-hospice.org.uk/paris
