People living in North Lincolnshire hungry for a challenge this year are being urged to consider doing it for a local charity.

To that end, Lindsey Lodge Hospice is holding an open evening at its Burringham Road base, on Wednesday 24 January (4pm and 7pm) where it will showcase the myriad of sponsored fundraising challenges it will be running throughout the coming year.

“Our challenges are a fantastic way to tick something off your bucket list, or put an existing talent to good use – either individually, or as a group – while raising funds for a very worthwhile local cause,” said Lindsey Lodge Hospice Challenges Fundraiser Sharon Tune.

“From cycling, running and trekking on land, to skydiving and wing walking in the air – we really do have some exciting opportunities planned, so we’re inviting people to come along to hear more about what’s on offer and how they can get involved.”

She added: “Over £14,000 was raised by our dare devil wing walking challenge alone in 2017, which shows just how successful these challenges can be in raising the much needed charity funding we need to ensure we continue to provide the best possible palliative care to our patients in North Lincolnshire.”
