Sandstone Trail 12 Hour Challenge in aid of St Luke’s Hospice

“Everyone did so well, I am so proud of the whole group!”

Jodie Lovett, Senior R&D Technologist, Advanced Medical Solutions

A team of Advanced Medical Solutions staff took on the 55-kilometre Sandstone Trail in under 12 hours in aid of St Luke’s Hospice raising over £2000 for the charity.

The Sandstone Trail is one of the most iconic walking trails in Northwest England, stretching over 34 miles across some of the most stunning English countryside. It begins in the market town of Frodsham, Cheshire and finishes in Whitchurch, Shropshire.

While many day hikers choose to take on smaller sections of the trail at a time, the Advanced Medical Solutions team took on the whole 55-kilometre route. They also had the added challenge of aiming to complete it in under 12 hours.

As well as the 34-mile distance, the team had to endure 3500ft elevation, the equivalent of climbing Snowdon! We want to congratulate all of the hiking team along with their support crew on an incredible achievement!

Jodie Lovett, Senior R&D Technologist, Advanced Medical Solutions commented:

“We experienced blisters, stinging nettles, running from inquisitive cows, and getting lost a few (or many) times – but all in all we made it! Everyone did so well and I am so proud of the whole group!”

ACTIVELY SUPPORTING ST LUKE’S HOSPICE

We are honoured to be able to support St Luke’s Hospice who provide vital palliative care to local people, giving support and refuge to them and their families in ways that go beyond the scope and funding of the NHS. 84% of their running costs need to be raised through fundraising and donations, and with an overstretched NHS, their efforts are more critical than ever.

There is still time to sponsor the Sandstone Trail team for their heroic efforts. If you would like to donate to St Luke’s Hospice and support their ongoing work, please click here.
