Fundraising News

If you fancy facing your fears and taking on a thrilling adrenaline fuelled challenge this year, Weldmar Hospicecare has you covered!

In addition to the recently announced Skydive Day in June, we are on the lookout for thirty intrepid supporters – as we mark our 30th anniversary – to take on our brand new challenge, Abseil for Weldmar, which will take place on Portland on the 12th May 2024.

Registration is only £25 per participant, with an achievable fundraising target of just £150.

Eden Fraser, from the charity’s Fundraising Team, is looking forward to supporting the abseiling adventurers. “I am so excited to be launching this brand new challenge for Weldmar, which will be an amazing experience for everyone taking part and a great way to get involved in our 30th year celebrations. It’s a perfect activity to do with family, friends or colleagues, and we will support everyone with fundraising tips, resources, and motivation. Every penny raised on the day will allow us to continue providing specialist care for adults in Dorset with a life limiting illness, and support for their loved ones.”

Weldmar is a charity close to our hearts, having supported family and friends in the past, as it no doubt is for so many people in Dorset. Abseiling is an amazing physical and mental challenge, and we will ensure that everyone will leave buzzing and feeling a massive sense of achievement.”
