Ladies there is still time to get entered, get your pack and get going on the all new Foyle Hospice Female Walk!

It is down to final week until the Foyle Hospice Female Walk/Run so register now and pick up your pack for the day from the Foyle Hospice Fundraising Centre and the Foyle Hospice Shop, both of which have extended opening hours.

The Fundraising Centre, 61 Culmore Road, Telephone: 028 71359888, will be open on Saturday, May 26, from 10am – 3pm, Monday, May 28 – Friday, June 1, from 9am – 8pm and Saturday, June 2, from 10am – 3pm.

To make it as easy as possible to register we have now opened the Foyle Hospice Shop for registrations as well. The Foyle Hospice Shop, Waterloo Place, will be open Monday, May 28 – Friday, June 1, from 9am – 5pm and Saturday, June 2, from June 10am – 5pm.

There was a glitch this year with the entry form mail out so if you have taken part before but not received your form in the post yet then just come along to the Fundraising Centre or the Hospice Shop in Waterloo to register and collect your pack for Sunday, June 3.

The all new Foyle Hospice Female Walk/Run is taking place on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 1.30pm and will start from Templemore Sports Complex with the finish line at Ebrington Square via the Peace Bridge.

Speaking recently, Noel McMonagle, Community Fundraising Manger said “We are now down to the last few days and really want to put on a big final push. Entries have been slow this year so I hope ladies of the city will take this final week as the opportunity to get involved and get their entry forms in to join us on Sunday for our 13th Female Walk.

“Again I would like to highlight the importance of everybody’s sponsorship – every £1, £2, £5 or £20 makes such a huge difference. We offer inpatient care, day therapy, home care services and bereavement support. Once again I would like to extend thanks to our key sponsors; Seagate, Q102.9 and the Derry Journal.”

The Female Walk takes place on Sunday, June 3, at 1:30pm. Entry is £7. Entry and sponsorship forms available from Foyle Hospice Fundraising Centre, 61 Culmore Road, 71. 359888 or Foyle Hospice Shop, Waterloo Place. www.foylehospice.com.
