St Helena Hospice’s flagship event, Pier to Pier, returns on Sunday 12th May with hundreds of local people walking along the beautiful Essex coast in aid of their local hospice.
The scenic walk, which has been going since 2011, starts from either Clacton or Walton Pier taking in views of the sea, and participants can choose to walk the seven miles between the two piers or challenge themselves further to make the return journey – 14 miles in all.
Pier to Pier is open to all ages, plus the route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Many people walk on their own or in groups to remember their loved ones, or simply take part to support their local hospice.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
