We sponsor Hospice Walk

Posted on 31 March 2015

We sponsored the Larne Hospice Walk for the eleventh year, helping the local charity to care for those living with life-limiting illnesses in Northern Ireland.

The annual Hospice Walk took place on Saturday 28th March at 10am from Larne Leisure Centre to Carnfunnock Country Park and back and saw hundreds of people pounding the streets to support the cause.

Marketing and Product Development Manager Lisa Blair commented:

“We have developed a close relationship with Hospice over the years and it’s always great to get involved with the annual walk in Larne”

This year Northern Ireland Hospice hoped to raise £110,000 from the event, which will be used to support the provision of hospice care services for people living with terminal illnesses as well as offering support to their families. All care is given free of charge and is provided 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

The majority of funding came from local supporters helping the Hospice offer free a service that is free to patients and their families.
