Walk the Hospice Trail with us In the few months Woods have been fundraising for St. Wilfrid’s Hospice, we have nearly raised our £10,000 target. We’ve held a Quiz Night, ran a 10K, taken part in the Moonlight Walk and now we are assisting St Wilfrid’s with transport for their charity walk in September. We will have at least one Woods Team taking part on the day and we hope you may be able to join us. Read on for further details! On Sunday 1st September you are invited to come and walk a section of The Sussex Hospice Trail with us. Each year the Sussex Hospice Trail is marshalled and all hospices encourage supporters to go and walk a section. This year they are looking to get a record number of people on the trail walking a single section. Come walk 10 miles between Halnaker to Chichester with us. A whole support team from St Wilfrid’s Hospice will be doing Walk 26 - Halnaker to Chichester, a 10 mile ramble across the countryside and we’d love to have you join us. All about the walk... Its 10 mile linear walk from Halnaker crossroads to Chichester rail station in West Sussex along the Sussex Hospices Trail. This stretch of the trail is packed with interest, leading you through Halnaker Park (with a very long magnificent stretch of flint wall and mansion ruins), past Goodwood Racecourse, over St Roche’s Hill, along the Centurion Way and finally visiting Chichester Cathedral. From the summit of St Roche’s Hill you will be rewarded with some of the best views of the whole trail, a panoramic vista taking in Chichester Harbour, Chichester Cathedral and a long stretch of the coast to the south, as well as the South Downs to the north.

Gather a team together and you will receive: • Free parking at Chichester High School and a warm welcome from the St Wilfrid’s support team • Free coach travel kindly supported by Woods Travel to the start of the walk • Walking marshals who will carry a first aid kit, and be there to help motivate people along • A back marker to ensure no one is left behind • A walkers’ passport and an exclusive commemorative medal at the end of the walk and refreshments Teams of 2-8 can participate with a one off entry fee per team depending on team size. All registration fees go to your local hospice - so be sure to choose St Wilfrid’s Hospice, Chichester from the list and donate your registration fee straight to us Teams up to 4: £40 registration fee Teams up to 8: £80 registration fee https://stwh.co.uk/support-us/events/friendsof-sussex-hospice-trail-2019
