Moonlight Walk 2019

Be a star for St Wilfrid's!

Join #TeamWilf on Saturday 11th May at 10pm for a 5 or 10 mile sponsored walk through Chichester – walk to remember a loved one, walk with family and friends, walk to show you care. Starting at Westgate Leisure Centre, we will unveil the brand new way to place a loved one’s name in memory. Then your walk will take in the sights of Chichester including the beautifully lit Bishops Palace Gardens.

Entry for the Walk includes:

  • commemorative t-shirt
  • refreshments on the walk 
  • light breakfast after crossing the finish line

This year we are offering the chance to purchase an event medal and have it engraved. Simply register for the walk and see the MLW Fundraising Pack for further details.

Over 11 years our amazing supporters have made Moonlight Walk truly special and helped raise vital funds. Thank you for raising money in a million ways, through sponsorship, donations, coffee mornings and jumble sales. This year we aim to raise £100k with prizes for the top 3 teams and the top 3 best individual fundraisers available. For the first time we are also offering individual fundraisers the opportunity to become 'Super star walkers' and earn a special hoodie if they can raise over £200 each. 

St Wilfrid’s Hospice goes the ‘extra smile’ to help terminally ill people to get the most out of life for as long as possible. Which means providing the very best tailored end of life medical and nursing care that we can in a loving and supportive environment. It is thanks to our generous fundraisers and donors that we can provide our vital services. Only 16% of our funding comes from the NHS – we have to find the rest – over £7.5 million each year - with the help of everyone in our community.

“I’ve had a lovely evening, it’s been really super. Lovely weather, lovely walk, lovely company and everyone’s been so friendly”.

If you wish to volunteer on the night sign up for our steward and marshal volunteering roles here.

 

The last 11 years you have really shown the love...
