Ever fancied walking the Great Wall of China?


St Catherine’s Hospice is calling on Prestonians to put on their trainers and take on the five-day trek.

It follows last year’s Dalai Lama Trek in India last year.

An opening evening is being held at the hospice in Lostock Hall for people to find out more about the trek which will take place in October.

The open evening is on Thursday (10 January) at 6.30pm at the Mill cafe in the hospice grounds.

Head of community engagement at the hospice Emma Jacovelli said: “We’re so excited to be heading overseas once again to raise vital funds for our charity, giving our fantastic supporters a chance to experience one of the seven wonders of the world and take on this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime feat.

“For anyone wanting to really challenge themselves in 2019 and experience something new, this is the perfect way to get fit and active, travel the world, meet new people, and support a much-loved local charity.

“I took part in the Dalai Lama Trek and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done – we all had such an incredible time and whilst it was certainly a challenge, we worked as a team and helped each other through it, seeing some amazing sights and experiencing the culture of India along the way.

“Our China trek promises to be just as exciting and rewarding, and we’re delighted to team up with Global Adventure Challenges once again to host this epic charity challenge in 2019.”
