Tyrolean Traverse Cruit. Iain Miller, Unique Ascent

Now you can with Foyle Hospice!

Get ready for Foyle Hospice’s all new challenge in the wilds of Donegal.

This event is not for the faint hearted and will definitely be a test for even the bravest.

Join Foyle Hospice on Saturday 13th June 2015 to travel to the most remote road-end in Ireland for a Unique Ascent and challenge yourself to take on sea, land and air!

The Unique Ascent event will be a test for all abilities as participants will be required to paddle in a raft

to the base of one of Donegal’s iconic sea stacks.

From there you will complete a 100ft technical rock climb, then, launch off the summit of the sea stack and traverse 300ft along a thin rope back to the cliff tops on the mainland. Could you handle it?

Foyle Hospice is celebrating 30 years of providing Hospice Care Services in the North West in 2015.

You can make a difference to a patient and their family by getting out, getting active and raising vital funds – changing your view for a day can change the quality of someone’s life.

The annual running costs at Foyle Hospice amount to £2.9 million and only 20% of this is funded through HSCB. This leaves approximately £2.23 million to be raised through fundraising and the good will and generosity of the local community.

Our patients and families availing of our services rely heavily upon your support to ensure the on-going provision of Hospice care in the North West region of Northern Ireland.

This will be a one day activity with numbers strictly limited.

The group will depart and return from Foyle Hospice, 61 Culmore Road. The trip will include all transfers, equipment, trained guides and support from Unique Ascent plus a meal on return back to Foyle Hospice.

If you are interested in taking part and wish to obtain further details including the fundraising target for the challenge then contact Community Fundraiser, Rachel Bruce, on 02871359888 or email rachelbruce@foylehospice.com.
