Registration is now open for St. Michael’s Hospice Moonlight Walk so grab your trainers and be part of a glorious night out walking under the stars, whilst raising money for North Hampshire’s only adult Hospice.
Last year’s event was great fun with everyone enjoying themselves while knowing that they were doing a great service to their community. Basingstoke and Deane Mayor Jane Frankum noted that “it was amazing and so good to see so many people doing it.” This year, to help celebrate the Hospice’s 25th anniversary, we would love for you to go crazy with your outfits and show your brightest, most colourful clothes’.
All of our events have been wonderfully supported so far this year and we hope to beat last year’s terrific total and raise £20,000. Men, women and children of all fitness levels will be walking the 8.5 mile course with walkers passing through areas such as Kempshott and Hatch Warren. Groups, clubs and companies are all encouraged to get their members and colleagues together to enter a team – a great way to team build!
Online registration is now open on the website stmichaelshospice.org.uk/events or alternatively you can register on the night from 8.30pm inside Festival Place with the warm up starting at 9.45pm 9th September.
Pre-registered prices for adults are £17 and £10 for children aged 17 and under and £45 for a family. Registering in advance saves money with registration on the night costing £20 per adult and £12 per child.
The entry fee includes refreshments and a special Moonlight Walk medal on your successful return to Festival Place. Places are selling fast so make sure you register your place or team at stmichaelshospice.org.uk.
At St. Michael’s Hospice we are dedicated to providing care to people throughout North Hampshire who are affected by life limiting illness. We work hard to give our patients the best possible quality of life by providing specialist care and support, both within our Hospice in Basingstoke and at patients’ homes, amidst an environment full of love and support, warmth and friendship, comfort and dignity. All services are free of charge and are tailored to help patients and families cope as best they can with the challenges they face.
In 2017/18 it will cost £3.9 million to provide our patient services to the local community with less than 20% funding from the North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group. We therefore need to generate a net contribution of £3.1 million from Fundraising, Gifts in Wills, Lottery and Retail activities to support patients and their families affected by life limiting illnesses.
