Saint Catherine’s has launched a series of fundraising challenge events for 2022 – including a brand new 18K sponsored walk.

The Scarborough Three Peaks, organised by Saint Catherine’s, will take place in Sunday 1 May

Participants will start at Saint Catherine’s Hospice in Throxenby Lane, Scarborough, and trek 18k via Jacob’s Mount, Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough Castle and back to the hospice.

Registration for this event is £20, which will include refreshments on the route and a Saint Catherine’s T-shirt.

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager, said: “With the new year now under way, we know that many people are looking for a new challenge and wanting to look after their health and wellbeing.

“We wanted to create a new event for our supporters, and with such a beautiful and varied route right on our doorstep, we thought the Scarborough Three Peaks would be ideal. We hope to see lots of supporters new and old on the day – and we will be there to cheer you on!”

Susan added: "Saint Catherine’s Hospice provides care and support in people’s homes, the community and in our hospice for adults with a terminal illness, and to their families, carers and friends. Our doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors and social workers are trained specialists in palliative care who take a unique ‘whole person’ view of every individual, their life and their loved ones and work with them to enhance their health and wellbeing.

All our services are free of charge. We rely on and are very thankful for the tireless work of our supporters and donors to raise the £5 million needed to deliver our specialist care.
