Walk the Great Wall of China for Katharine House Hospice!

New year, new challenge?

Katharine House Hospice is calling on local people to embark on the trip of a lifetime and trek the Great Wall of China this October to raise much needed funds for the hospice.

Trekkers will be able to experience thousands of years of history as it forges it’s relentless, undulating and seemingly endless path through China. This incredible 9 day trip avoids the most popular locations and includes the opportunity to camp the in one of the Great Walls watch towers to see the sunrise and sunset, as well as an additional tour of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square once you are back in Beijing.

Events Fundraiser, Lisa Carson said
