Hundreds step up for Moonlight Walk Week 2020

St Wilfrid’s Hospice much loved annual Moonlight Walk event went virtual this week, and has currently raised over £46,000 so far!

Over 600 supporters have stepped up to support their local Hospice with 10,000 or 20,000 steps, taken at their own pace in their own chosen place.

Walkers have collectively blazed a trail 4550 miles long from Emsworth to Arundel, Midhurst to Selsey, in Chichester, Bognor, the five villages and many more places besides.

Chief Executive Alison Moorey said, “During these strange times, we are incredibly proud so many members of the local community stepped up to support St Wilfrid’s vital work in the local community. It is only thanks to this ongoing support of the public that we can continue caring for local people living with a terminal illness as they face new and ever changing challenges.”

Ruth Cleeves has been a fundraising supporter for St Wilfrid’s for ten years and said, “I’d always set myself the ambitious goal to raise £10,000 for St Wilfrid’s in memory of Frank, Susan and my wonderful Mother Mary. I am immensely proud to say, having now completed 7 walks in 7 days reaching 100km for Moonlight Walk Week, and I have finally reached that goal!”

Fundraisers have been getting fit while honouring a loved one by swimming, walking, running, skipping and even horseback riding their own personal distances to make the Moonlight Walk their own.

All walkers have until December 1 to get their fundraising into the Hospice, with several prizes up for grabs for top fundraising teams and individuals.
