Step up for our trekking challenge

One of our brave supporters is embarking on a trek of a lifetime. Could you join her?

Step up for our trekking challenge

Have you heard of our new Trek Vietnam challenge? We’ll be taking a group of intrepid explorers on a 10-day challenge through the beautiful Vietnamese countryside in March 2025. The challenge will also see the team volunteering with a local community project to support palliative care facilities in the country, which will be an incredible project to be involved with.

Our supporter, Cat, has been sharing her reasons for signing up to the challenge, in a bid to encourage others to join her.

Cat says:

“When I saw Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care advertising Trek Vietnam I just knew it was for me. The charity cared for my husband, Martin, at the end of his life last year so this is a way of both giving something back to the charity and really pushing myself. Martin spent his last two weeks in the Peace Hospice Inpatient Unit and the staff there just couldn’t do enough to support both him and me.

I’ve always fancied doing a challenge like this and I’m not getting any younger. So if I don’t do it now, I never will! Having the chance to take on this trek while raising money to make sure other families can benefit from the same care we received, is an opportunity I couldn’t miss.  I’m training by hiking with my friends in the UK and taking part in organised hiking events over the coming year.

I’ve signed up on my own and I’m really looking forward to meeting the other people in the group. I know the trek will really push me so it will be great to do it as part of a team. I’d encourage anybody else who is looking for an adventurous way to see a bit of the world while challenging themselves, to sign up and join me!”

Our Events Manager, Emma Stewart, says:

“Trek Vietnam is a totally new event for us and we’re delighted to have people like Cat already on the team. The trip promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the trekkers who will also be raising crucial funds so we can continue offering vital services to people in our local communities who need them.”

This is an incredible challenge for all concerned and will provide a great opportunity to make a difference both in Vietnam and to the patients and families we support locally. So if you’re an explorer looking for your next adventure, find out more about this unique challenge today.
