Beth Candy, Hospice Events Assistant and Challenge Co-ordinator, said: "We've got something for everyone and challenges which appeal to all ages.

"As usual our loyal supporters are also organising their own events and we'd ask anyone who wants to get involved and do something for the Hospice in our special year to please get in touch."
