Rugby Ramble to score vital funding for
Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice
Birmingham rugby fans are being challenged to complete a 10-mile sponsored walk, ahead of watching the highly-anticipated England Vs Ireland match later this February
Rugby Ramble – organised by Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice – will see participants walk from the Hospice in Selly Park to Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club, where they’ll watch the Six Nations game on the big screen.
Taking place on Sunday 23rd February, rugby enthusiasts, avid walkers and even dogs are welcome to take on the trek – which is a scenic walk through south Birmingham’s parks and canals.
All ramblers who cross the finish line will be treated to a free pie, chips and pint to reward them for their walking efforts.
Last year, 271 walkers took on the sold out Rugby Ramble, raising over £21,000 for the Hospice. All funds raised will go towards Birmingham St Mary’s, which provides care and support to local people and their loved ones who are living with life-limiting illness.
Every day, Birmingham St Mary’s cares for and supports 500 people across Birmingham and Sandwell. Its expert team can provide care in people’s homes, in the community and at the Hospice. It will cost £9 million to run Birmingham St Mary’s services this year, 64 percent of which must come from voluntary funding.
Rugby Ramble starts at 9.30am. Tickets cost £15 per person, or £12.50 each when booked in groups of four or more. For more information or to sign up, visit: birminghamhospice.org.uk/rugbyramble
