Mini Miles 4 St Giles

Entry fee: Free

Duration: 7 days

Location: Wherever you like!

Distance: Set your own

How: Hop, skip and jump… or bike, scoot and bug hunt!

Hop, skip and jump your way to help St Giles over 7 days!

Now that the summer holidays are here, we’d love your little ones to join #TeamStGiles and clock up some mini miles!

Whether they hop, skip and jump, or bike, scoot and bug hunt… your kind-hearted kids can complete their challenge however they like. Plus, there’s no set distance either, meaning they could tackle a mile a day (or maybe even more!) over 7 days this summer.

Whatever they decide to do, their mini miles will make a massive difference to local people living with a terminal illness – with friends and family encouraged to get involved too!

By raising sponsorship, you’ll help to raise vital funds for Katie’s Appeal and even earn yourself some super St Giles goodies.

How to get started:

1. Decide on a challenge and click ‘sign up now’

2. Set up a JustGiving page here ready to start raising sponsorship

3. Get moving and tick off those #MiniMiles for St Giles!

If you have any queries, please email our friendly fundraising team on fundraising@stgileshospice.com or call 01543 432538.

In light of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, we’ve never needed you more than we need you today.

We’ll be with you every skip of the way

After you’ve signed up you’ll receive a bespoke digital fundraising pack, which includes:

  • A Mini Miles movement tracker
  • A nature trail to complete as you clock up miles
  • A sponsorship form
  • Plus, plenty of tips and advice to help you raise as much as possible from home*

A dedicated member of our fundraising team will support you every skip of the way and you’ll receive a certificate at the end of your challenge!

*For a £5 donation, you could get all of this printed and posted to you, along with a St Giles moneybox.

Get sponsored and get rewarded

When you reach mighty milestones in your Mini Miles journey, you’ll achieve new rewards! These will be posted to you on completion of your challenge, so be sure to keep us up to date with your progress. Please note: All rewards are achieved on an individual basis.

It takes a community to make a hospice

Evie Deeley, 9, is calling on kids to take part in Mini Miles 4 St Giles after having a great time walking, running, skipping and doing cartwheels over 65 miles to raise £1,310 for St Giles!

Evie’s mum, Liz Whalley, said: “I would definitely recommend people to encourage their kids to take part in Mini Miles 4 St Giles.

Evie loved doing it as it gave her a sense of achievement. She loved to see what she had raised money for and how it could help other people.

I think St Giles is a wonderful organisation. They gave my Grandma Margaret respite care, which made such a difference to her – it was just phenomenal care.”
