We are one of the headline charities for Totally Stockport KRAZY RACES!

Krazy Races has unveiled that our hospice is one of its 2024 official headline charity partners, alongside the Christie Charity.

We are thrilled to be partnering with the popular Stockport soapbox derby event taking place on Sunday 28th July.

Last year’s inaugural event welcomed over 15,000 people to watch the national award-winning event, and this year they’re looking for teams to compete.

A maximum of 40 teams made up of locals and business teams will build, design and of course race their wonderful and weird soapboxes through the centre of Stockport!

We’re excited to be working with Krazy Races and look forward to what promises to be another fantastic day for all the community.

The money raised will go towards our Build it together appeal for a new hospice in Heald Green, directly benefiting Stockport patients and their families.

We are now at the halfway point in our public appeal to raising the final £2 million we need to build a new hospice for the future of St Ann’s. In total, building the new hospice will cost around £22.5 million, which includes buying the land next door to the existing hospice site in Heald Green.

“The driving ethos behind Krazy Races is rooted in our charity partnerships. 2023 was a record-breaking year for us with our events raising over £100,000 for charitable causes, including £20,000 for Stockport charities. Our ambition is to raise even more this year; through our partnership with both The Christie Charity and St Ann’s Hospice, we are confident that this is more than achievable with our 2024 partnerships, two household names that have made such a positive impact on the lives of so many people within Stockport.” Sarah Belcher, founder of Krazy Races
