In March 2020, St John’s Hospice will be taking on the formidable Himalayas! We will explore the lush woodland valleys of the Pokhara region, conquering steep climbs, navigating across suspension bridges and enjoying phenomenal views across the unforgettable alpine landscape.

The 10 day trek will be led by an experienced team of Sherpa’s who will guide us through the stunning Sardi valley, over the Tara Hill Top wooded knoll and show us the 360 degree views of the Annapurna Range.

Take in the life changing views of the fishtail peak of the Machupucchare Mountain, experience the sunset and sunrise glow against the glistening snow top peaks and explore the mountainous village of Tanting - all in the name of fundraising for St John’s Hospice. This will be our fourth overseas adventure. Almost £350,000 has been raised in our first two treks!

If you would like more information about this trek or future overseas challenges please contact Chris Pilkington on 01524 382538 or email Chris at

St John's Hospice

St John’s Hospice is a local charity supporting patients and families in North Lancs and the South Lakes since 1986. Serving a population of over 250,000 people, we are specialists in palliative care for a range of life shortening conditions.

Having a life shortening condition does not mean that quality of daily life should suffer. Our experienced team of specialists work together with our patients to make sure they are getting the care and support they need to live their life the way they want to, as much as possible.

Our In-Patient Unit provides a high standard of specialist palliative care and support around the clock, 365 days of the year, for anyone aged 18 years and over.

Our Day Therapy Services provide a place for people to come and talk to others going through similar experiences to them, make friends, take part in group exercises or perhaps relax with a complementary therapy session. The aim is to enhance quality of life and to promote independence as far as possible.

Our Hospice at Home team are a dedicated unit of healthcare professionals who visit patients in the comfort of their own home to offer specialist palliative care at the end of life. Offering symptom management as well as support and advice, the team is there to help both the patient and their family.

The care we provide at St John’s Hospice is free of charge to patients and families, but it is not cost free. We receive 30% of our core funding from the NHS, for the remaining 70% we rely on our amazing local community and fundraising efforts.
