Charity gives fundraisers chance to see the world

8th February 2019

Sheffield Hospitals Charity is inviting fundraisers to see the world whilst taking on the challenge of a lifetime, with a brand spanking set of two new international events.

Places are up for grabs for the charity's first ever overseas challenges the London to Paris Cycle in September and the Sahara Dunes Trek, in Morocco in November. London to Paris Cycle is a four day bicycle ride suitable for all abilities, starting in the heart of London, ending the challenge and celebrating in Paris under the Eiffel Tower. The Sahara Dunes Trek, ideal for an intrepid explorer, is a five day hike around Ouarzazate in Morocco. Along with the mesmerising landscapes, fundraisers can enjoy traditional Moroccan food around the campsite and sleeping under the stars. Fiona Prakasam, fundraiser at Sheffield Hospitals Charity, said: -We are so excited to introduce our two new overseas challenges which we hope will be a big success for us. -These events are once in a lifetime experiences. Our fundraisers can make friends for life and go on an incredible adventure which will stay with them forever, all while raising funds to enhance the care of patients receiving treatment in our hospitals. For more information about the events, or to sign up, visit or contact Fiona Prakasam on 0114 3052812.
