Join Friends of Sussex Hospices on 23 September 2017 for the launch event of the Hospices Trail, Walk the Hospice Trail. Simply get a team together to walk one stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail, becoming part of a simultaneous relay to mark the official launch of the 200-mile trail. All money raised will go to support the Sussex hospices. Find out more about the event and how to take part…
The Sussex Hospices Trail was created as a joint project between Friends of Sussex Hospices and iFootpath, establishing a new 200-mile circular long distance path to link the 12 hospices in Sussex. The trail will be used to raise awareness of the invaluable services the hospices provide as well as raising essential funds to help support this provision. The full trail has been published as a series of 26 individual walks on the iFootpath App, allowing people to bite off as much or as little as they would like.
On Saturday 23 September 2017, Friends of Sussex Hospices is hosting the trail’s official launch event, Walk the Hospice Trail. Anyone can submit a team (of up to eight people) to take part and can choose which stretch of the trail your team would like to walk. Your team will leave your chosen Start Point at 9am and follow the route on the iFootpath App, walking at your own pace. This is not a race or competition! At the end of your walk, every member of your team will be presented with a cap, medal and a copy of the trail passport.

You can register your team at www.hospicestrail.co.uk/register-your-team and you can choose which Sussex hospice will receive your team registration fee of £80, or if you would like the fee to be shared by all the hospices.
The event is kindly supported by C P J Field.
This will be a wonderful way to explore some of the highlights of the Sussex countryside whilst at the same time making some new friends, being part of an ambitious relay and supporting an excellent cause.
