Over the last 24 years, St Mary’s has grown and developed extensively, enabling the hospice to care for many more local people each year. Although St Mary’s care is provided free of charge, it is not cost free. The care provided to 1 in 10 of our patients is down to you attending fundraising and supporting their extensive events calendar over the year.
Last year St Mary’s introduced 'Walk to Remember Extra' last year, which successfully attracted more support and gave local ladies a new challenge. The original seven mile Walk to Remember starts from ASDA in Barrow at 10pm. Anyone who wants to ‘go the extra mile’ for St Mary’s can take part in Walk to Remember Extra which starts from St Mary’s Hospice, Ulverston, at 9pm, covering 11 miles. The two walks meet and join into one on Abbey Road, at the checkpoint at the bottom of Dalton Lane, Barrow. Both walks finish back at ASDA, Barrow.
Both walks cost £10 to register. For your registration form call our Fundraising Team on 01229 580305.
There is no minimum sponsorship but St Mary’s does respectfully ask that you try to raise as much as you possibly can. Why not ask your employer if they will match fund you?
Volunteer on the night
If you would like to be involved in the event, but for whatever reason are unable to do the walk, how about volunteering your assistance on the night? St Mary’s will need lots of help, both male and female, with stewarding, registration, refreshments and other duties.
To register as a volunteer please contact the Fundraising Team on 01229 580305 between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
