On Saturday 22 April 2017 there will be the opportunity for people of all ages to come to Dorothy House Hospice Care to remember loved ones as this year we are combining two of our annual events.
Our sponsored 5k Memory Walk through the beautiful countryside surrounding the hospice is open to all. Our Tulip Fund holders are welcome to take part in the walk but if they prefer can choose to simply attend one of our complementary tea sittings.
You can pick and choose which parts of the day you’d like to attend. E.g. just enjoy a tea as a Tulip Fund holder or have your Tulip Tea and then take part in the walk or take part in the walk and have your Tulip Tea afterwards – the choice is yours! For those who are walking, other team members are most welcome to stay at the hospice and enjoy the creative activities and refreshments.
4.30pm Event opens
5pm First Tulip Tea (option A)
6.15pm Memory Walk
7.45pm Second Tulip Tea (option B)
The Tulip Tea is free of charge to Tulip Fund holders and included in the registration fee for walkers but please select which option (A or B) you will be attending. There will be delicious cakes, savoury snacks plus hot and cold drinks. If Tulip Fund holders are bringing additional guests a donation to cover refreshment costs would be appreciated.
The 5k circular walk is open to all, including children and even the dog! It follows a picturesque route along footpaths, the canal and fields. Please note there are also hilly sections and parts which could be muddy so sensible footwear should be worn. We regret that due to the terrain the route is NOT suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
Entry for the Memory walk is £12 for adults and £5 for children (aged 16 and under). Participants can choose to raise sponsorship or make a donation in lieu: the amount is your choice, but we suggest a minimum of £20 per adult. All walkers automatically get to enjoy a Tulip Tea either before or after the walk.
Please view the event’s terms and conditions at Terms & Conditions on the web site.
The chapel and the grounds will be open for everyone to explore plus there will be free creative family activities from 4.30pm in our Day Patient Unit.
All attendees will have the opportunity to put their own message on a candle bag, which will shine in the stunning grounds of the hospice.
