A children’s hospice is challenging residents to take on a triple-task charity challenge.

With the Olympics looming this summer, Haven House Children’s Hospice is launching a sporting themed fundraising challenge – Tri3.

The challenge asks people to complete three sporting events in 12 months to raise essential funds for the Woodford Green hospice.

Whether it be cycling, running, trekking, skydiving or abseiling, Haven House has a range of events to suit all ages and abilities for participants to select from.

Events fundraising officer, William Arnold, said: “A new year brings the chance for new opportunities and new challenges. This year, we really are asking people to go that extra mile for Haven House in completing three incredible challenges.

“From tackling the UK’s tallest sculpture by abseiling down the Orbit or running 13.1miles across the capital or perhaps jumping 13,000 feet through the air– we really do have a fantastic range of challenges for people to get involved with.”

New for this year is the Mont Blanc Trek, which involves trekking across three countries in three days circling the highest peak in Western Europe

Haven House relies on the generosity of local people to keep its doors open to the 379 local families who turn to them each year.

The hospice provides specialist care for seriously ill children and their families.

Will added: “We always get such great feedback from our participants and by signing up, not only are you doing something positive for yourself, you will be helping to raise funds for those families who need it the most.”
