You have spoken and we have listened! 

With so many requests from supporters asking us for a new way to get up, get out, get together and get fundraising, we are excited to be launching our brand new family friendly Virtual Hospice Walk…​​​

The Event

Throughout June we are giving you the ideal opportunity to take on a 5km walk at your own pace with your family and friends, on your chosen day and on your chosen route! And hey – if 5km is a walk in the park for you….. pile on those miles and up the ante by choosing a distance of your choice!

From1st-30th June 2021 you can celebrate being together again with family and friends or simply set yourself a solo challenge that will make a difference for the patients in our care.

Registration is just £8 per person and includes a fantastic fundraising pack for every walker including a t-shirt, temporary tattoo, bespoke walker number and a post walk virtual medal.
