History of Worting House
With 300 years of history, Worting House has been host to many rich and famous faces over the years including Jane Austen. The beautiful Georgian manor of Worting House, was built during the reign of King George I (1714 to 1727). Later in the 18th century, the house was extended and wings were added, forming the Worting House we know and love today. It has been owned over the generations by several important local Basingstoke families and hosted many local society gatherings.
Please find a downloadable event information sheet below, providing full details for the walk. If you would like to display who you are walking for, please download a walker sheet below to print and attach to your clothing on the event day.
This year it will cost over £5.5 million to operate the Hospice and provide our services to the local community, with less than 20% funding from the North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group. We kindly ask all participants to try and collect a small amount of sponsorship to help us continue to provide our care for patients facing life limiting illness in the community. Here is how your contributions will help:
- £5.60 is the cost of printing a special memory book for children who have lost someone at the Hospice.
- £15 is the average cost of providing 3 meals, drinks, and snacks to a patient per day
- £20 is the cost of 1 nurse for 1 hour
