A woman who was inspired by Jurassic Park to raise funds for Queenscourt Hospice walked 10 kilometres through the streets of Southport – dressed as an 8ft tall Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur! 

Joanne Caddy, the Head of HR and Volunteering at the hospice in Southport, was joined by Queenscourt HR and Volunteering Manager Amanda Bradley as her Jurassic Park Ranger. 

The pair made a roarsome effort to complete the whole course in costume, stopping for lots of selfies and pictures for startled passers-by along the way. 

People are able to donate by visiting the Cadders and Bradders Jurassic Trekk fundraising page on the JustGiving website here

Joanne said: “We did seem to get a lot of interest on the walk around! Lots of people wanted photos with us.

“Working for Queenscourt means I get to see all the good work they do! 

“The whole of Team Queenscourt are so dedicated to provide the best possible care and support to patients and their families – it’s a privilege to work there. 

“It also means I see how much it costs to provide these amazing services and how we rely heavily on the generosity of the public – over 80% of the running costs are provided from the public which is both amazing and sad that we wouldn’t exist without the public support.

“Working at Queenscourt means I have done a couple of Star Trekks now in my 10 years I’ve been there so I wanted to do something a bit different!

“The T-Rex costume made me laugh when I saw it so I thought it might give everyone else a chuckle too!

“I can say I totally under-estimated how hard it would be though!

“I realised I hadn’t thought it through properly by the time I had walked from the car park to the start line!

“It was extremely hot inside and the viewing vent kept steaming up which is why I had to rope in my friend and colleague, Amanda Bradley to be my Jurassic Park Ranger and help me along!

“The response on the way round from other participants was brilliant though and made it totally worth it!

“I would like to shout out to the Queenscourt Fundraising Team who did an amazing job organising the event. 

“And an extra special shout out to everyone who took part or sponsored someone. It means so much to everyone at Queenscourt but especially to those local patients and families we are able to support.” 

The 10k Star Trekk walk through the streets of Southport saw walkers wearing fuchsia pink shirts this year as they walked from Southport Pleasureland, along Marine Drive, past Silcock’s Funland and Silcock’s Carousel, along Lord Street, down Eastbank Street and Scarisbrick New Road, part Queenscourt Hospice, through Birkdale Village and then back to where they started. 

A Queenscourt Hospice spokesperson said: “A huge thank you to everyone who came along and made our 17th Star Trekk so incredible on Friday night.

“Thank you also to the 80 plus volunteers who make this event possible – including volunteer marshals, front walkers, back walkers and registration volunteers 

“Massive thank you to our sponsors, Titan Mechanical Services, Slimming World Southport and iSight Clinics.” 

Many trekkers walk in memory of a loved one or because Queenscourt has supported them personally, while others take part for a fun night out and to raise money for their local hospice.

    good content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
