***The Dorothy House Dusk Memory Walk on Saturday 18 April has now been postponed.
After carefully reviewing the current situation and assessing all the advice from the Government and WHO we feel our only course of action is to postpone this event and reschedule it for later in the year (date to be confirmed). We are so very sorry to have to do this but we will always put the health of our patients, families, supporters, volunteers and staff at the forefront of all our decisions. We feel this is the only safe course of action to take.
Rest assured, all those who have entered will be transferred to the new date and we will update all entrants on the details as soon as we have them. Sincere apologies for this change but in these exceptional circumstances we hope you will agree that it’s the sensible (and only) course of action we can take.
Please do keep an eye out for updates from us as the situation develops.
Thank you so much again for your support of the Dusk Memory Walk and of Dorothy House.
Please do take care of yourselves and your families and keep safe during this uncertain time.***
Join hundreds of others in a gentle walk to celebrate life, remember a loved one and raise money for Dorothy House.
The Dusk Memory Walk is a 5km circular sponsored walk. It starts at the Hospice at 7pm and ends as daylight begins to fade. We invite you and the whole family to come along – including the dog!
When you sign up to do the walk, we’ll send you a paper candle bag and a dedication label. You can personalise both with a message or picture. At the end of the walk, we’ll invite you to light a candle so your message shines out over the grounds of the Hospice.
How it works
Entry for the Dusk Memory Walk is £12 for adults, £5 for anyone under the age of 18 and free for children under 2 years. A family ticket costs £30 (two adults and two children). The walk is a sponsored event. We don’t specify a minimum amount, but we’d love you to raise as much as you can.
If you’d rather not raise sponsorship, we’d be most grateful if you could donate instead. We suggest £28 per adult, but that’s just a guideline – the amount is completely up to you.
Registration opens at 6pm and the walk starts at 7pm.
What’s the route like?
The walk is 5km, starting and ending at the Hospice.
Part of the walk will be through fields and could be muddy so please wear sturdy footwear. There are a few gentle hilly sections. We regret that the route is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
