Participants enjoying walking

St Margaret’s Hospice Care is offering the chance to remember a loved one, whilst enjoying the great outdoors by taking on its new virtual sponsored walk ‘A Walk to Remember’ on the weekend of 17/18 October. 

It is free to take part and register your place, they are asking all participants to raise sponsorship of £40 or more to help continue their care and support of patients and their families across Somerset.

You can walk any route in any location – why not try out somewhere new, they are suggesting a distance of around 10 miles, but it’s your challenge so choose whatever distance is right for you. However you choose to do your virtual sponsored walk you are kindly asked to adhere to the latest government coronavirus guidance.

Once registered to take part, you’ll receive a welcome pack which includes; a St Margaret’s Hospice Care 40th anniversary pin badge, a pack of their limited edition Ruby Sunflower seeds, a memory dedication bib to wear on your walk and a sponsorship form – and to celebrate your amazing achievement and fundraising efforts – so you’ll also receive a certificate!

Any sponsorship raised from family, friends and colleagues goes towards the care and support St Margaret’s nurses, therapists and doctors provide for patients and their families. £40 could help pay for a counselling session for a child or young person who has lost their parent.

Sonia Bateman, Events Fundraiser at St Margaret’s, said: “Our new virtual sponsored walk ‘A Walk to Remember’ is a perfect opportunity to remember someone special, whilst doing something amazing for your local community. By taking part and raising sponsorship, you can help to ensure over 4,900 people facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset receive the care and support they need this year.”
