Moonlight Memory Walk event update
In light of the developing situation and uncertainty relating to the Coronavirus pandemic, we feel it is our duty to keep our event participants, volunteers and wonderful fundraisers and supporters safe.
The 2020 Moonlight Memory Walk will now take place on Saturday 26 September. If you have already registered your place will automatically be transferred to this new date unless we hear from you. If you have purchased tickets on behalf of friends and family, please let them know that it has been postponed and the new date.
Please let us know if you are unable to make this new date. If you cannot join us, we would be so grateful if you would consider your registration fee being treated as a much needed donation to help our children and families. To donate your reg fee and cancel your place simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and postcode. To add Gift Aid to your kind donation, please complete our short online form.
However, if you would prefer this to be refunded, please complete the form on our website. All refund requests must be received by 30 April 2020 after which point all remaining registrations will automatically transfer to the new September event date.
For any new supporters wishing to join us on the new date, registration will be reopened on Monday morning (23 March).
If you would still like to mark the occasion this week you can complete a 5 mile walk with our virtual option. You can walk the 5 mile route around Falmouth (or an alternative 5 mile route of your choice) at a time convenient for you. We will send you a t-shirt, goodie bag and a medal in the post (and if you choose to walk the Falmouth route we can send you route map in advance too). If you decide to walk virtually, please email Kiley so we can send you everything you need.
If you have raised sponsorship for this year’s memory walk we hope your friends and family will continue to join with you to help children and families at CHSW – sponsoring you to walk virtually or in September when we walk the route together. If you have any questions or concerns about sponsorship money please do get in touch.
Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times, ensuring that we can be there for children and families when they need us.
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.

We would be delighted if every walker at our Memory Walk could aim to raise £50 for Children’s Hospice South West.

- Invite10 friends around for Bubbles and Bakes and charge them £5
- Share your sponsorship form with family, friends and work colleagues
- Do a cake sale, dress in purple day or tuck shop sale at work or ask your local school to do one for you!

You can pay your sponsorship money in online or you can send it in by post to: Little Harbour, Porthpean Road, Porthpean, St Austell, Pl26 6AZ.
Don’t forget to bring with you a torch or head lamp, bottle of water, comfortable shoes, a warm coat and fancy dress.
After the walk you will receive a medal, goody bag and pasty. You can also collect your candle bag to take home with you.
The Children’s Hospice South West Moonlight Memory Walk is an event that I look forward to very much every year and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
