The challenge is simple: complete a 100km, 75km, 50km or 25km trek over the Peak District.

The Peak District is stunning and more than lives up to its reputation as one of Britain’s most inspiring National Parks. TrekFest ‘The Peaks’ challenge routes encompass an impressive network of footpaths and bridleways, beginning and ending in the beautiful Hope Valley.

Alps, Mont Blanc Trek

Alps, Mont Blanc Trek

14th – 18th June 2017 or 6th – 10th September 2017

Trek 65km through the Mont Blanc region of the Alps. Trekking through 3 countries in 3 days, this long weekend challenge will open your eyes to the beauty that lies within the Alps mountain range – just under 2 hours away from the UK!

The route will certainly challenge us with lots of ups and downs, but the rewards are the pleasure of seeing the most spectacular views this part of Europe has to offer – from stunning cliffs, to gorgeous waterfalls running from glaciers.

Come trek the Alps whilst supporting Weston Hospicecare!

Regular Giving

By signing up to give the hospice a regular gift, you’re touching the lives of so many patients. It also enables us to plan ahead. If we know we’ll be receiving a regular amount of money, we can continue to commit to ongoing care that can help patients and their loved ones month after month. You can choose how much you give – from as little as £2 a month, if you wish – and, if you are a UK taxpayer, you can make this gift even more valuable to us, as the government will allow us to claim back 25p to every pound you donate.

Phone Fundraising on 01934 423960 for more details or visit www.justgiving.com/weston.
