One last summer adventure

Keeping the kids occupied for six whole weeks can seem like the most mammothChilterns 3 Peaks task. What will you do with them for that long? There are only so many visits to the local park, finger painting pictures and water fights you can keep reinventing with convincing gusto. Rennie Grove Hospice Care proposes you this; A day out for the entire family – including the dog, that allows you to spend precious time together in the great outdoors whilst exhausting the kids to the point where they are bound to sleep beautifully through the night in preparation for starting a new school term, bright eyed and bushy tailed.

The Chilterns Three Peaks Challenge is set to take place on Sunday 4 September, the week before many of the schools start their new year. Offering a five, nine or 18 mile walk along the Chilterns Ridgeway you can choose the challenge that will suit the whole family for an adventurous day out. Take in the stunning panoramic views of Buckinghamshire atop of Whiteleaf Cross, Coombe Hill and Ivinghoe Beacon whilst the kids and the dog play amongst the greenery, creating the last of their summer holiday memories. 

Many people have walked the chalk in previous years in memory of a loved one who Rennie Grove Hospice Care may have cared for at some point during their last years. This year there is the opportunity to place a personalised memory tag on a tree in the Wendover Memorial Woodland. Members of the Family Bereavement Support Team will be on hand to offer guidance and advice on the day. 

Rennie Grove provides 24/7 responsive end-of-life care for local patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses and their families. Offering bereavement counselling and support throughout the caring and loss process for as long as the family need it.
