We are delighted to announce that the Great Wall of China will be the destination for our next overseas trek! Taking place from October 17 to 25, 2020, this will be an unforgettable experience, while raising money for St Margaret's Hospice Care.

To find out more about this exciting adventure, we are holding an Information Evening on Monday 29 July, 2019, from 6pm to 8pm, at our Taunton Hospice. 

The challenge

Join us for this amazing bucket list destination while raising money for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset. You will discover the beauty of China on this challenging 5-day trek along parts of one of the world’s greatest wonders. The route features both original and restored sections of the wall, offering challenging terrain and a very rewarding experience as you trek on, and next to, this marvellous structure, set off by a backdrop of rolling hills and rural farming communities. Your trip is rounded off with a visit to two of Beijing’s highlights, The Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.
