By Ben Carey on 16 January, 2024

Swindon’s Prospect Hospice is inviting fundraisers to lace up their running shoes for its annual Spring Run in March.

The charity, which provides a dedicated end-of-life care service for people living across north east Wiltshire including Swindon, Marlborough and Royal Wootton Bassett, will welcome the local community to take part in the event at Coate Water Country Park on Sunday 3rd March.

Runners of all levels, from seasoned athletes to enthusiastic newcomers, are encouraged to participate in this exciting event which offers time chipped 5k and 10k routes.

The Spring Run promises a celebration of community, fitness and fundraising to help the charity continue providing its range of services to the region, with a supportive and encouraging atmosphere that will inspire participants to push their limits and achieve their fitness goals.

Sheryl Crouch, Head of Income at Prospect Hospice, said, “We’re delighted to bring our Spring Run to Coate Water Country Park for another year of exciting challenges and community spirit. This event is not just about running; it’s about coming together, pushing boundaries, and making a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Whether you’ve experienced the hospice’s care or just simply want to run and raise funds for a great cause, we welcome you to join us for a day of fun, fitness and fundraising.”

Prospect Hospice provides end of life care to people 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. The hospice provides all its services free of charge to patients and this is made possible thanks to generous donations from the community it serves which raises 75% of the £8 million it costs each year to operate.
