Moonlight Walk Week 2021

A new way of walking for the times we live in

St Wilfrid’s Moonlight Walk Week returns! This year our official Moonlight Walk Week will be between Saturday 4th –11th September 2021 and there are two special ways you can be part of it.

How you can take part 

Register today and choose either:

  • The Virtual Moonlight Walk! Choose your own 5 or 10-mile route and be part of our special Moonlight Walk Week between Saturday 4th – Saturday 11th September. Walk a route of your choice at a time that suits you and your family and friends and connect with us virtually!
  • The Moonlight Walk Evening Event! Join us on Saturday 11th September for the return of our familiar 5 or 10-mile route through Chichester, including the specially lit Bishops Palace Gardens. Entries to this physical event will be capped with some time slots selling out fast, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Please note both options will be carefully planned in line with the latest government guidance and may be subject to change.

Why your support matters

Any money you raise will deliver compassionate end of life care for those who need it. Now more than ever, your sponsorship counts to help others: 

  • By reaching your £60 fundraising target, you could support 2 home visits to a patient by a St Wilfrid’s Nurse Specialist. You will also earn a special edition medal to mark your achievement for St Wilfrid’s!
  • 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 the others in your community. Register below and make a difference.

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.”
