Rushmoor is the borough in Hampshire that contains the towns of Farnborough and Aldershot and covers the majority of the course for the Farnborough Winter Half Marathon.
The unstinting support of the Council was instrumental in getting the inaugural event off the ground in 2017and we are delighted to be working with them once again this year.
For over 35 years Phyllis Tuckwell has been supporting and caring for patients and families who are living with cancer, or another terminal illness.
Their wide range of services, all of which are offered free of charge, ensure that both patients and their families are able to make the most of the time they have left together. Care is delivered from the Hospice in Farnham where there is an 18 bed In-Patient Unit and a Day Hospice, at the Beacon Centre in Guildford and through their Hospice Care at Home team out in the community.
It costs around £10 million a year to run the Hospice’s services but only 20% of their costs are covered by the NHS/Government. This means they have to raise around £20,000 every day and we are delighted to be doing our bit to support them.
