Walk to remember loved ones and support the work of the Hospice
Thames Hospice is inviting supporters to walk to remember their loved ones in their annual Sunflower Walk on Saturday 11 September 2021.
This year the charity is calling on supporters to ‘do it your way’ and walk in memory of their loved ones by taking on a local route of their choosing, covering a distance of either 2.5k, 5k or 10k. Afterwards walkers will have the opportunity to visit the charity’s new Hospice by Bray Lake to collect their well-earned medal in person and enjoy an afternoon of celebration in the Hospice gardens from 11am to 6pm, with a BBQ, refreshments, children’s entertainment and live music.
Commenting on the event, Alison Evans, Head of Events and Community Fundraising, said: “We were thrilled with the amount of people that supported our Sunflower Walk last year, despite lockdown restrictions, with participants from all over the world! We would like to encourage everyone to get involved again this year so we can make it even bigger and better! Please invite your friends, family and neighbours to join you.
“Every penny you raise will enable us to continue to give local people dignity, compassion and the best possible end-of-life care and support.”
Registration for the Sunflower Walk is free, however the charity asks that everyone raises a minimum of £75. For those who raise more than £75, they will receive a Thames Hospice t-shirt as well as their medal. Everyone who visits the Hospice after their walk will have the opportunity to write a special message for their loved one on the Hospice’s special memory tree in the gardens.
