High Sheriffs Join Walking Challenge


The High Sheriffs of Wiltshire and Hampshire paid a special visit to Naomi House & Jacksplace. They arrived at our hospices in full traditional dress, including swords, to meet ahead of Clarendon Way Walk where they are taking part.

"hiking" Sheriff of Hampshire, supported by Wiltshire, is in training for the Clarendon Way walk from Winchester to Salisbury Cathedral to raise funds and awareness for the superb efforts of Naomi House & Jacksplace hospices who support life limited children and young adults

Clarendon Way Walk raises vital funds for Naomi House & Jacksplace, so that we can continue to support the life limited and life threatened children and young people who use our services. The walk has long become an important and memorable annual event for supporters of our hospices.

The walk is a historic path that travels between Hampshire and Wiltshire, giving all participants fantastic views, as well as very good exercise, as they set off from Winchester Cathedral and head towards Salisbury Cathedral. This year, there’s a range of walks to get involved in along the route - from a gentle 5 mile walk to an ultra challenge walking from Salisbury to Winchester and then back again starting in the dark!

I have been challenged by the High Sheriff of Wiltshire to walk the Clarendon Way from Winchester Cathedral to Salisbury Cathedral in aid of Naomi House & Jacksplace. Now in training for 12th September..
