About the Event

There’s a lot of good reasons to join in the Hospice Walk on Saturday April 21st or 28th!

Walking is a great way to keep fit and lose a pound or two.

We are offering a choice of 6 scenic routes to enjoy plus a D.I.Y walk.

Walking offers quality time for sharing with family and friends and your dog can join in too.

Walking for Hospice is a great way to help others who are dependant on hospice care to help them cope with their illness.

D.I.Y Walk

If you can’t make it to any of the planned walks, why not plan your own ‘Do It Yourself Walk?’

Simply choose a date you are free and walk your favourite route. Then all that is left to do is to ask friends, family or colleagues to support you with a donation.

Every pound you raise will help us care for those who need our support.

What to Bring

Bring your friends, family and pets! Wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes.
