Moonlight Walk Week 2021

During Virtual Moonlight Walk Week 2021 we have plenty of content to inspire and entertain you to keep going, and motivate your supporters to give for this important local cause. You’ll hear from Alison Moorey, Chief Executive of St Wilfrid’s Hospice wishing our Digital super star walkers well on their walks, be able to download more kid’s activities with a uniquely Moonlight theme, fitness tips from FitJoy, and hear messages of support from around the Hospice. Things to look out for include:

  • Head Chef Christian share the secret to his walking success - a delicious and nutritious 'Wilf' snack bar!
  • It’s not just hundreds of you stepping up for St Wilfrid’s. Four of our shops are locked in friendly competition this week as each vies for the title of the shop with the most steps. That’s a running tally for every step taken by each member of staff during opening times all Moonlight Walk Week long.
  • Pet parade! – A ‘pupdate’ from just some of the fetching canines donning the bandanna for #moonlightwalkies this week!
  • Even our gardeners are observing Moonlight Walk Week in their own way by planting night blooming flowers in the wild meadow at the Hospice. They’ll be sharing top tips and best flower picks for nocturnal gardens

  • By being a Superstar Walker and raising £220 or more you could fund over 8 hours of patient care on our ward at the Hospice. In addition to your medal, you will also receive an exclusive 2021 Superstar Walker hoodie in recognition of your superstar fundraising status!

Walk to remember a loved one, walk for fun with family and friends or just walk to show you care. Whichever sponsored walk you choose, you will be doing something amazing to support end of life care in your community. Register now and start making a difference.

Volunteer for the Moonlight Walk Evening Event!

On Saturday 11th September we will be welcoming up to 600 walkers onto the route through Chichester with staggered start times from 6:30pm. We will need a lot of help and support to make it go smoothly and we promise you a great experience. There really is nothing like supporting so many people to do a walk that means so much to them.

Supporting the Moonlight Walk Week 2021

If you are unable to take part this year, but are keen to still support the Moonlight Walk Week 2021, then you can show your support by donating on JustGiving to this year's fundraising total.

This year we are also welcoming back Henry Adams as proud sponsors;

Ian Wiggett, Chief Executive of Henry Adams Lettings, said, “My father received outstanding care from the team at St Wilfrid’s last year, which brings the invaluable work that they do very close to home. This is just one of the many reasons that we wanted to continue with our support for this wonderful hospice which serves our local communities and families so well.”
