Men’s Walk to Support

Register Now

Join us on Sunday 13 February 2022 for our Men’s Walk To Support! This eight-mile walk is an opportunity for men aged 12+ to join together in solidarity and raise vital funds for end of life care in our local community. 

The walk starts at 12 noon from Dorothy House, Winsley. Participants will set off on the route that follows along the canal and finishes at Bath Pavilion, in time to watch the Six Nations England v Italy match at 3pm.   

Celebrate your epic achievement with a well-earned free pint and food in the Pavilion! 

Team up with your brother, your son, your dad, your best mates, or take on the walk solo – it’s up to you! However you choose to get involved, the Men’s Walk To Support is a great chance to chat and share experiences with fellow participants, all while supporting our vital work at Dorothy House. 

Entry is £25 and all participants will receive a free event t-shirt. But, this is a sponsored event and every single penny raised helps us to be there for other patients and their families who need us. So, raise over £200 in sponsorship for Dorothy House and you’ll receive a free beanie hat to show-off your support with pride!  

Whether you’re walking to show your support for Dorothy House or in memory of a loved one, we would love for you to join us. Dust off your walking boots and sign up today!

Additional Information

All participants are expected to raise a minimum sponsorship of £50 (or £25 for under 18s). Alternatively, participants can make a personal donation, in lieu of sponsorship.

But – raise over £200 and you’ll receive a free event beanie hat to show-off your support.

Free Beanie Hat

Every participant that raises over £200 in sponsorship for Dorothy House will receive a free beanie hat! Even better – if you reach the £200 sponsorship target by 1 February – we’ll have your beanie waiting for you at the event to wear on the day!

Other Food and Drink Available

At the start, we’ll have refreshments provided by Devizes Rotary Club.

Along the route, feel free to pop into one of the pubs located along the canal for a quick drink – but don’t spend too long there or you’ll miss the start of the match at the Pavilion!

At the Pavilion, in addition to your free pint and snack, we’ll have a bar open for you to make purchases until 6.30pm.
