Sponsorship

As you know, East Cheshire Hospice depends on support from its local community to deliver its essential care.

Therefore, we suggest all participants set a target to raise £50 in sponsorship to support the Hospice. Fundraising can be done individually or jointly with friends, family, or colleagues. Fundraising is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills, set goals and get you across the finish line.

Once registered, you can set up your online fundraising page on JustGiving here.

Time Slots available

You can either pick 10am or 11am slot. (You can attend both slots if you wish by completing two registrations)

If you would like to book a group of multiple people please email events@echospice.org.uk or call 01625 666998.

Synchronised Swimming Challenge

Reckon you’ve got what it takes?

Synchronised swimming is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers performing an elaborate routine in perfect synchronisation, accompanied by music.

Gather a group of friends and set yourselves the challenge to learn how to synchronise swim and put together a routine that will eventually be performed to an audience. The challenge is to learn a routine before the big performance day and encourage supporters to sponsor you all for the challenge in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice.

Make sure to fill in the details about your swimming challenge, set yourself a fundraising target, share your page with friends and family on social media, email, WhatsApp, text… And away you go!
