Lantern Walk of Remembrance

File Title

Help raise funds for St Barnabas Hospices through our Lantern Walk of Remembrance.

On Saturday 16th March, we are holding our first Lantern Walk in Sleaford. Starting from St Denys Church Rooms, we will be walking a figure of eight route around the area, allowing people to choose to walk either 2.5 or 5 miles.

The walk starts at 6.30 pm and we ask if those participating can raise sponsorship money for our hospice services.

Event Fundraiser, Chris Fox says “The Lantern Walk is a great way for people to remember passed loved ones who have been looked after by St Barnabas. I shall be walking in memory of my Gran who died just over a year ago. I am hoping that people will join me at this event, not only to raise much needed funds for our hospice work, but also to share in celebrating the lives of our patients and the 20 years of dedication from our nurses and volunteers in the area.”

This event is open to anyone of any age, as long as under 18’s get their parent or guardian to walk with them. Registration costs just £5.00. Upon registration, walkers will receive a map of the routes and a sponsorship form. You will also receive a lantern on the night of the walk, plus a commerative medal, hotdog and a drink at the end of the walk.

The money we raise in your area will go towards providing palliative care, free of charge to the people of Lincolnshire, through our Inpatient Care, Day Therapy Service, Hospice at Home, and Family and Carers Support Service. We raise and spend over £3.1 million a year on palliative care services for the people of Lincolnshire, having a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of terminally ill patients and their families.

Places are limited and early: “registration is recommended. For a registration form or further information, please call Chris on 07918023908 or email chris.fox@stbarnabashospice.co.uk.
