Ways to support us
Walk to Remember 2017
St Mary’s Walk to Remember is back by popular demand. Hundreds of walkers will come together to show their support on Friday 7th July.
The Walk to Remember is a 10 mile sponsored walk that starts at St Mary’s Hospice at 8pm and finishes at Furness Academy.
Melisa Dixon, St Mary’s Community Fundraiser Officer said “After looking at various ideas we conducted a survey and we have listened to our valued
supporters. We’re very excited to continue the Walk to remember this year and are confident in the love the community have shown for it. Every
walker that signs up helps us raise vital funding for our hospice care and this year we’ve tried to make it more inclusive by lowering the
age band to age 8 for our younger supporters.”
On the night, walkers will get a chance to warm up with Clare Tonkin from Ulverston Leisure Centre. Clare will be there at the start of the sponsored
walk to run through a few exercises and get people ready to go. There will also be a retail stall and face painting.
Mel added "Because the walk is so personal, this year we wanted to give people the opportunity to get personalised t-shirts. We’ve worked
with a local supplier who can provide t-shirts that have the name of the person you are walking for proudly displayed on them." The link for
our T-shirts will be coming soon.
The walk is sponsored by Cumberland Building Society. “Cumberland is pleased to sponsor St Mary’s Hospice Walk to Remember. This is a great event
which will provide a friendly and memorable challenge and, importantly, help raise a lot of money for St Mary’s Hospice.”
Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for 8 – 18yr olds. We are also running an early bird offer where tickets will be £7.50 for adults up until Monday
Book your ticket now!
Please note your entry fee covers the cost of registering for the event, we ask all adults taking part to pledge a minimum sponsorship of £30.
To give you an idea of what £30 means to St Mary's - £1.50 covers the average petrol cost for a hospice at home visit - this will provide petrol
to enable 20 visits! Or a hearty breakfast on our Inpatient Unit is £3.50, this means over 8 delicious breakfasts! Thank you for your support.

This year to help make our Walk To Remember extra special, we’ve teamed up with Coniston Corporate and we are delighted to give you the option of a completely personalised t-shirt. So you can proudly share the name of the person who has inspired you to take part. For each t-shirt sold St Mary’s will receive a donation – so your t-shirt is fundraising too! Please note we will provide free generic ‘Walk to Remember’ t-shirts on the night.
