An uplifting five mile sponsored walk
Our five mile Moonlight Memory Walk is an uplifting night out where we remember our loved ones and join together for a special candle lit ceremony. The ceremony gives walkers an opportunity to reflect, remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones with readings, music and a touching display of lit memory candles.
By taking part and fundraising in memory of your loved one, you’ll be supporting the families who use our hospices, helping them to create their own precious memories that will last a lifetime.
Grab your early-bird tickets before Tuesday 4 February!
Can't join us on the evening?
If you can't join us in Falmouth on the 21 March, you can take part in our Virtual Memory Walk by walking five miles in your own time and raising sponsorship. We'll send you a fundraising pack, T-shirt and a candle bag to decorate and light. You can join the memory ceremony virtually at 9.30pm on the evening by joining us via Facebook Live.
The memory ceremony before the start of the walk was very moving. The fountain on The Moor looked wonderful with all the candle-lit decorated bags in memory of loved ones surrounding it and made a real focus for the evening.
If you're not able to join our Moonlight Memory Walk, you can still support the work of the hospice and celebrate the life of a loved one by making a donation in their memory. You will receive a candle bag to decorate which you can then place a tealight inside to light with us at 9.30pm on Saturday 21 March 2020.
