Anyone looking for a challenge in 2022 should consider supporting St. Joseph’s Hospice in Thornton

The hospice, whose charitable income dropped by a massive 53% in 2020 due to the pandemic, has launched the fundraising initiative to help it move forward post-pandemic so that it can continue to care for local people in the future who are approaching the end of their lives.

Four incredible challenges have been launched by the hospice and supporters are being invited to choose which one they would like to take on in 2022.

You might choose to abseil 150ft down Liverpool Cathedral, one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Alternatively, how about doing a tandem skydive from 11,000ft over the Lancashire countryside? If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, why not take on the Strictly St. Joseph’s challenge and learn to dance with a professional?

If cycling is more your thing, St. Joseph’s Hospice has just been announced as one of the charity partners for this year’s Liverpool to Chester Bike Ride. The whole family can get involved and there are various routes and distances available for all abilities, including a short 5-mile tunnel route.

Zoë Furnivall, fundraiser at St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “The pandemic has had a massive impact on our ability to generate income for the hospice over the last two years but we also know that so many people are desperate to get out and about and do something really exciting this year.

“These are four fabulous challenges which will really help you to make your mark on 2022 and have a really exciting life experience to look forward to and fundraise for. There is something here for everyone so take your pick and give us a call to sign up.”

All the dates and details of the four challenges are available at To register your 2022 challenge, contact the hospice’s fundraising team on or call 0151 932 6044.
