100k Your Way

May 19 - June 30

This June, support St Richard’s Hospice by taking part in our 100K Your Way challenge. Grab your trainers and enjoy your daily exercise in the sunshine by taking in the beautiful sights of your community, whilst raising vital funds to help support local people living with life-limiting illnesses.

Taking part in #100KYourWay is easy! You can run, walk, cycle or even dance your way to 100km throughout the month of June. You can complete the distance in any amount of time, from one weekend to spreading it over the month, the choice is yours! Why not get your household involved too by taking on 100K Your Way as a team?

Everyone who signs up for the challenge will receive their very own St Richard’s Hospice t-shirt and a special 100K Your Way certificate on completion. We’re asking those who take part to raise as much as possible, to help us ensure we can be there for patients and loved ones, when they need us most. With help from you – and our fantastic community of supporters – we are hopeful that we can come through these difficult days together.

It is important to take on the 100K Your Way challenge safely and in line with Government recommendations during social distancing. Remember to:

Exercise locally
Use open spaces if possible
Stay 2 metres apart from others not from your household

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
