Adventurers are being given the chance to take part in a trip to raise money for Manorlands and help the hospice celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The Sue Ryder centre at Oxenhope is staging a Nepal trek in November, and registration is now under way.

An open evening has been organised at the hospice on Thursday, January 30, for people to learn more about the challenge.

There is a £245 registration fee, and each person is asked to raise £2,995.

Return flights, accommodation, support and most food are included.

“Trekking Nepal for Manorlands will enable us to provide incredible care for people living with incurable illnesses in Airedale, Craven and North and West Bradford,” said Lizzie Procter, the hospice’s palliative care services manager.

“Last year our dedicated team at Manorlands cared for 1,170 people locally, at a cost of over £2.7 million.

“The support of our trekkers will enable us to continue providing this care in our 40th anniversary year.”
