We are over the moon to be chosen to be the Local Charity for the 2017 Vitality Bath Half Marathon!  We’re very excited about the event and would love to have you on board.

 

How to get involved!

We’d love to have you on board as part of the legendary Team Dotty!  We’ll provide you with all the resources you’ll need plus loads of encouragement and support.  Having run the race ourselves we know what you’re going through!  However, don’t just take our word for it; this is what one of our runners said after the Bath Half Marathon 2016:

“Thanks to you and the team for all your support and encouragement. Keep up the great work!”

“I wanted to say how much I appreciated the “Team Dotty” tent and post-race massage.  It was really great to be able to drop my bag off, and the post-race massage really helped recovery.”

“Thanks for a wonderful welcome and the wonderful support from Team Dotty! We are very sore today but thorough enjoyed our first half marathon!”

Here’s some background about Dorothy House Hospice Care….

Forty years ago, the world was a very different place to the one we find ourselves in today.

Some things though, remain the same.

In 1976, Dorothy House was founded as an independent charity, providing palliative and end of life care to Bath and the surrounding area. That, along with our core philosophy, has not changed. 40 years later we continue to provide services to help patients, their families and carers live each day to the full, and to ensure where possible the best quality of life. Covering an area of 700 sq miles across BaNES, parts of Wiltshire and parts of Somerset,

We offer comfort, security and the chance to cherish life. We connect patients with each other, as well as with rehabilitation programmes and complementary therapies for them, their families and carers. And we’re there for them with counselling when they’ve said goodbye. Our Outreach Centres, Day Patient services, and network of hugely popular Dorothy House Charity Shops make a real difference where it matters most.

For every £1 from the NHS, we have to raise £4 and we are so grateful for the support of our community, without you we would not have been able to support over 900 patients that we do each day.

“You don’t realise how amazing this charity is till you need them, they really make the difference at a very difficult time.”

 

Bring on being part of the fantastic Team Dotty runners and we can’t wait to hear from you!
