Enjoy scenic countryside run for hospice

Runners can sign-up for an annual run through fields and open countryside around a village in aid of hospice care.

The Scenic Six, run by St Richard’s Hospice, takes place at 11am on Sunday, April 22 in and around Peopleton, near Pershore.

The event is named after the course – which is a six mile off-road, multi-terrain route. There is also a two-mile fun run, jog or walk available.

Last year, around 230 runners helped raise £3,000 to support the hospice’s care to patients with life-limiting illnesses, their loved ones and bereaved people.

Jayne Sargeant, Fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We really look forward to this event, as it’s such a fun and varied course through one of the county’s picturesque villages.

“We were delighted last year’s event raised so much for our care – so sign-up and help us raise even more in 2018!

“From the team here at St Richard’s, we’d like to thank the community in Peopleton for its continued support in hosting this popular event.”

After the run, everyone is welcome to refreshments, delicious cakes and an awards ceremony in the village hall.

The Scenic Six is sponsored by The Plough and Harrow Drakes Broughton and is supported by Peopleton WI, Les Bailey, La Povey and volunteers from Peopleton and St Richard’s Hospice.

Both races begin at 11am. To find out more and to sign up, visit www.strichards.org.uk/event/scenic-six/
