The Midnight Walk is BACK and this year we’ve added a touch of magic to our new five and ten-mile routes...
Why do the Midnight Walk?
Stroll along candlelit pathways, make a wish under twinkling lights in the illuminated magical wood; glow neon bright as you enter the fun ultra violet, chill out zone; then pause and take time to reflect by candlelight.

How your fundraising makes a difference...
It costs over £5 million every year to continue our free services, and just £50 sponsorship could help fund a specialist nurse to visit a patient in their own home - just imagine the huge difference that every penny you raise will make.
“On 13th April Val and I renewed our wedding vows. It was a very special day. We threw a party for all our friends and family, and hospice chef, Chris Took, made a huge cake. But then over the summer Val started to deteriorate.
“She came to the Hospice as an inpatient for the first time on 2nd August. A week before she died I would not have thought we would lose her so soon. But when she got to the Hospice it was as if everything stopped. I think she had found herself in a place of peace where she could relax and finally let herself go. She felt as if everything had been done and she was in a place where she felt safe."
