The Hospice today launched Hospice Team 100 – a new mass participation cycle ride which will leave the Hospice in Ipswich for France.
A team of 100 supporters will be sponsored for the challenge, which is set to raise a total of £100,000 for the Hospice.
Places are limited and can be secured at a special registration evening in September.
Gavin Lamb, of St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “We are really excited about bringing 100 people together for one cause with our new overseas cycle challenge.
“It is going to be an experience to remember and we are encouraging families, friends, colleagues and groups to join Hospice Team 100 in making a difference to our patients and their carers.”
To join Hospice Team 100, you must reserve a place for the special registration evening which takes place on September 15th 2014 between 6pm and 8pm, at the Hospice in Foxhall Road, Ipswich.
To reserve a place on the night, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01473 707941
Each cyclist is asked to pay a £99 deposit and raise a minimum of £1,850 in sponsorship – enough to fund a Hospice nurse for two months. There is also an option to pay for your own tour costs.
The Hospice will support participants with fundraising tips and workshops. Cycle training sessions will also be offered.
Participants must be 16 or over; under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
Hospice Team 100 will leave Ipswich on September 15th 2015 returning on September 20th.
St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive illness in East Suffolk and Norfolk and relies on public donations and fundraising to provide care free of charge.
