Raise sponsorship for Walking in Memory

The ticket registration fee helps to cover the cost of this 5k charity walk, but we are asking that participants raise as much sponsorship as they can from family, friends and colleagues. Plus when you receive your first donation, you’ll be eligible for a free branded St Clare t-shirt!

  • £50 – Could pay for two hours of specialist, compassionate nursing care at our Inpatient Unit so families can become sons, daughters, wives and husbands again, rather than carers.
  • £100 – Could pay for the cost of running the whole Hospice at Home team for an hour. A typical visit could include two nursing assistants gently and professionally washing and shaving someone in the last weeks of life, to give them back some personal dignity.
  • £200 – Could cover the cost of St Clare providing a special service, wedding vow renewal or wedding service for a patient and their family and friends. Our chaplain can support families to arrange and host celebrations and events at the Hospice, or in the community, to mark milestone occasions in a way which families will treasure forever.
