PROSPECT Hospice has launched its 2019 events programme to help raise the £8.4m it needs every year to keep going.

The Wroughton-based palliative care charity has announced the return of its favourites like the Spring Run, held on Sunday 17 March, the Starlight Walk, and Run the Rainbow.

More ambitious events include the London Marathon Walk, a Snow and Sand Trek in Morocco and a trek to the ancient temples of Cambodia’s Angkor Wat.

“It is always a challenge for us to find new activities for our supporters each year, but I feel confident there is an activity in this year’s programme to suit everyone,” said Prospect’s community and events fundraising manager Amy Francomb

“No other charity locally offers the services that we do for so many local people, " she added.

"I’m hoping people will feel encouraged to start 2019 with a determination to take part in a fundraising activity for their local hospice."
