Following on from the success of our 1st International Trek last October, we are delighted to announce our 2nd International Trek will take place this October to the Amalfi Coast, Italy and help us raise funds for Galway Hospice
Trek Amalfi Coast promises to be full of memories and one you really don’t want to miss! This trek which takes place from Saturday 17th to Saturday 24th October 2020 and has been especially designed for the Galway Hospice trek so we can see some of the best bits of the Amalfi Coast including Naples, Pompeii, Vesuvius and Capri to name but a few!
Overview of the Trek
A web of ancient pathways winds along shoreline cliffs, leading from charming coastal towns, through rustic woodlands and up to beautiful villages perched atop craggy peaks. Highlights include our hike along the stunning ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (‘Footpath of the Gods’), one of the world’s finest day walks, the wonderful walk into the intriguing Valley of the Mills, the location of Europe’s first paper mills, almost a 1000 years old, the spectacular villages of Positano, Atrani and Ravello, a visit and a beautiful loop walk over the island of Capri. And of course, beautiful Amalfi itself.
Galway Hospice services are continuing to be in demand, with double digit increase in the number of patients and families being supported by us in 2019. We continue to be heavily dependent on fundraising activities to fund our Community Palliative Care and Daycare services which means that we continue to need to raise over €2.3million annually to fund these essential services. Campaigns such as the International Trek help us reach our €2.3 million target.
This promises to be a truly spectacular trip. We need you to raise a minimum of €3,000* for the trip which includes a non-refundable deposit of €300**. Included in this €3,000 is your flights, accommodation, dining as outlined in itinerary, guides and vital funds for Galway Hospice (a minimum of €1,700 from each participant will go to Galway Hospice). The total amount must be paid to Galway Hospice no later than 14th August 2020.
To help you along the way, if you decide to encourage a friend to come, we will offer you a €200 discount from your fundraising total.
Don’t worry, the Galway Hospice Fundraising Team are here to help with lots of fundraising resources from posters, fliers, collection buckets, sponsorship cards or even some promotion on our social media channels. We also have loads of ideas to get you started so do get in contact.
We do hope you’ll join us this year for our second international walk.
