St Michael’s Hospice is inviting runner to join its team for the Hastings Half Marathon on Sunday March 20.

All team members will receive a free race t-shirt and personalised sponsorship form, or you can set up a JustGiving or Virgin Money giving page for your sponsorship.

Chloe Dyas, from St Michael’s, said: “Last year the Hospice had 97 wonderful runners and walkers – let’s see if our supporters can beat that this year.”

The Hospice will be cheering runners across the finish line and offering them well-deserved refreshments, generously sponsored by John Jempson and Son Ltd, Rye.

To support St Michael’s Hospice in the Hastings Half Marathon or any other races, please contact Marcia on 01424 456381 or and join Team St Michael’s.

St Michael’s Hospice has been operating for the past 25 years and provides in-patient and out-reach palliative care to people with life-limiting illnesses across Hastings and Rother.

The Hospice is trying to raise funds following the devastating fire which caused damage to its St Leonards building last year.
