NORTHERN Ireland Hospice’s Vice President Olivia Nash, is calling on local people to support the 2012 Hospice Walk in Portstewart next month.
The annual three mile walk along the scenic Portstewart Strand Beach, taking place on Saturday, March 31 at 10am.
This year the NI Hospice ten walks event target is £180,000 and is needed to help support the annual fundraising target of over £5 million.
Money raised will help care for those living with a terminal illness and will offer support for their families. All care is free of charge and is provided 24 hours a day, everyday of the year.
The walks attract thousands of people of all ages and abilities. Local celebrities such as Hospice Vice President Olivia Nash will be amongst those walking to raise money for the charity.
The walk routes are organised by local volunteers who marshal the walk and are a friendly face offering refreshments at the finish line.
Every pound donated or raised will make a difference says NI Hospice Vice president, Olivia Nash: “By committing to the walk and getting sponsored people will be making a big difference as the money raised will make a huge impact on the lives of local people, people in our community.”
