Team story

[p]We’re not talking about just any old wall – we’re going to walk the Great Wall of China, this autumn, to raise money for Thames Hospice. We will spend five days trekking a remote section of this incredible monument; and have been warned it will be a steep climb for most of the way.[/p][p]To complete this amazing challenge we need to raise £6,600 between us. We will be working hard to raise the money for the Hospice by doing car-boot sales, running social events, holding barbecues, baby-sitting and dog-walking. Help us get started on our journey and reach for the heights with our fundraising, by making a donation to our cause.[/p][p]Apart from raising the money, we will also be busy training and getting fit. To this end Elaine has ordered her first ever pair of walking boots, and Susan has been checking out more arduous trekking routes![/p][p]We have both worked on reception at Thames Hospice for a number of years and having seen for ourselves, on a daily basis, the tremendous difference Thames Hospice makes to people’s lives. It’s not just the patients themselves that the Hospice cares for, it also extends help and support to their families and friends through this difficult time.[/p][p]Thank you for your kind and generous donation.[/p][p][b][i]Elaine & Susan  [/i][/b][/p][p][span=color: #000080;]Click here to see our blog on the Thames Hospice website:[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000080;][lt]span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: "Calibri","sans-serif"; color: #616061; mso-fareast-font-family: Calibri; mso-fareast-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family: "Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA;"[gt][url=https://www.thameshospice.org.uk/introducingthewallflowers]https://www.thameshospice.org.uk/introducingthewallflowers[/url][/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][b]Further Information on Thames Hospice[/b][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px 0px 13px;"[gt][span=margin: 0px; color: #616061;]Thames Hospice is the local charity providing expert care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
