Peace Hospice Care fundraisers 'lead the way' following the success of the 'Push It' event.

A Peace Hospice Care success story will be shared with an audience of more than fifty leading hospice fundraising professionals at a national conference in Colchester.

The presentation will be delivered by Peace Hospice Care Events Manager Pete Watson who has been invited to speak at the National Association of Hospice Fundraisers Annual Conference (NAHF).

The opportunity to deliver a talk at the event on March 13th and 14th follows the huge success with the 'Push it for the Peace' obstacle run in September 2013.

The Push It challenge raised more than £60,000 for the Hospice and Pete will be sharing some of his experiences and learnings with other hospices.

 'It is a real honour to have been asked to present at the NAHF conference especially when it is one of the new fundraising events that I have been involved with setting up', said Pete.

 'Given that many other hospices are wanting to find out about what we are doing with our fundraising events and looking to us as an example of best practice just shows that Peace Hospice Care is really leading the way'.

 The success of the Push it for the Peace fundraiser prompted the debut of the River Runner challenge on Saturday March 29th.

The event in Cassiobury park promises mud, water and a two mile sprint course that will push competitors to the limit. Last minute places are available for the River Runner.
