In October 2020 Amanda Paull is taking on the challenge of a lifetime. She will be trekking the Great Wall of China in memory of her dad, John who passed away in May. Amanda describes her dad as a brave, independent man, who fought his lung cancer until the end.

Great Wall of ChinaAmanda says “I am supporting City Hospice as they are a great charity that supports terminally ill patients in Cardiff. Sadly my dad did not make it out of hospital. I know that City Hospice pride themselves on supporting patients in their own homes. Having the support to keep loved ones at home for as long as possible means so much. So I am doing the challenge in memory of my dad.

I am looking forward to seeing one of the wonders of the world and a different culture. To do this challenge with fundraisers from Cardiff and raising money for a great Cardiff charity means the trek will be even more special. I am not looking forward to the long flight but it will be worth it. I have always wanted to visit China.

So I have joined the Village Gym to train. They have a step machine that will help me to get used to going up steps. I plan to walk some of the lovely mountains of Wales especially Pen-y-fan, hopefully with the other fundraisers.

To raise funds I am making crafts to sell out of recycled materials. There will also be table top sales, a bingo event and I’m arranging other social nights.

Daisy, City Hospice’s Fundraising and Events Coordinator shared:

Craft Items “I am so pleased Amanda has signed up to take on this challenge. Amanda has been working hard creating craft items to sell at our Santa Brunch event on Saturday 7th December. It just shows an example of how creative you can be with your fundraising. Amanda has made friends with the other trekkers and I am so pleased that City Hospice can be part of that. They have many training and fundraising plans and I am very excited for them to unfold!”
