INVITATION – an evening talk:

 Salzkammergut in Winter

An Information Evening to introduce our 2020 Austrian Trek

17th July at 7:30pm
Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross

Call 01-4911072 to reserve your place

Each year Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services embarks upon an overseas fundraising trek. The premise is simple – help us raise some funds though your own initiative (whether that is organising raffles, or car boot sales, or sponsored swims, or even sitting in a bath full of beans…) and in return you get to travel with us to a fascinating part of the world to explore on foot and celebrate the rewards for your hard endeavours!

In February 2020 the Hospice will be embarking on its very first winter trek, visiting the stunning Alpine region of Salzkammergut in Austria. This promises to be one of the most stunning treks we’ve ever hosted and has already met with a high level of interest, so to help provide a flavour of what to expect we are delighted to announce we have organised an evening presentation about the trek (free to attend).

We would be delighted if you (and your colleagues / friends) would be available to attend a short Information Evening presentation to introduce our trek. Our talk will take place on Wednesday 17th July  here at the Hospice. Call 01-4911072 to reserve your place.

The talk will be given by Drew Duggan (the tour guide accompanying us on the trek) and will last approximately 1 hr. Drew will provide details of the daily activities, the route, information about what to expect and what to bring; he is a mine of knowledge and has been to this area before so he will be able to answer any questions you might have.

This talk will also be a great way to meet up with other interested trekkers (included some who have been on our overseas treks in the past), so you will be able to meet some of those who you might end up with as walking buddies!

If you would like to attend our talk please let us know by completing the form below, thank you!
