Stadium hosts 'Dash' for hospice

Fundraisers will be stepping up to support St Peter’s Hospice. Stadium Dash

The Stadium Dash is taking place on Sunday,  February 3, and will challenge people to race up and down the 415 steps at Bristol Rovers Memorial Stadium to raise funds.

Also supporting the fundraising initiative is 1990s pop sensation Steps. The group heard about the cause during their visit to Bristol to turn on Yate's Christmas lights.

The band have since publicised their support for St Peter's Hospice on Twitter to their 46,000 followers. Louisa James, event fundraiser for the hospice, said: “The lovely thing about the Stadium Dash Challenge is that anybody can take part; you don’t need any specialist skills, just lots of enthusiasm. It will be a fun day out for the whole family."

A record time of 3 minutes 15 seconds has already been set by those at Bristol Rovers, so those feeling competitive on the day can try to beat it. Visit www.stpetershospice.org for more information.
