WESTON Hospicecare is looking for teams of volunteers to take on the challenge of a life time in its new event Operation Hospice Heroes.

On July 19 teams of four to six secret agents will compete in a series of physical and mental challenges to see who will be crowned the overall Hospice Heroes.

The charity is now appealing to the public to recruit work colleagues, customers or friends to join in the challenge.

For a suggested minimum donation of £100 and gift aid per person, team mates will work together to attempt a great escape in petrol go carts to dispose a ticking time bomb, turn their hands to rifle shooting, treasure hunting and building and launching a missile.

Supporters will not only be battling against other teams of secret agents, but will also be battling against the clock.

Sarah Livermore, corporate fundraiser, said: “The event is fantastic value and would normally cost several times more than the fundraising target.

“This year we need your help more than ever, so we are looking to provide a fresh, exciting event that lets supporters have lots of fun as well as helping us to raise much needed funds.”

For an information pack, or to register call Sarah Livermore on 01934 423921 or email

Closing date for entries is July 10 at 5pm and a £25 deposit is required per person.
