(L-R) Pictured here is Conor Kelly and Gary Kelly of Kelly’s Warrenpoint, alongside Laura Rowntree and Lizzie McCullough, Fundraising Officers at Southern Area Hospice Services and Odhrán Rowntree, launching this year’s Midnight Memory Walk.
Southern Area Hospice Services alongside event sponsors Kelly’s Warrenpoint, are delighted to invite you to their 14th Midnight Memory Walk, which is set to take place on Saturday 24 th September.
Since the pandemic, Southern Area Hospice Services have been unable to hold the event as they traditionally would have, with all walkers departing together. This year, they are delighted to be able to have participants walking together through midnight as a group once more.
For the past 14 years the Midnight Memory Walk has always been a special evening for the local community and for Hospice. Our local Hospice must raise over £3 million this year alone so that their services can continue to help and support people within our community. The Midnight Memory Walk has become a vital income-source in our Hospice’s fundraising calendar, and therefore your support is very much welcomed.
Registrations are now open, and you are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to allow Southern Area Hospice Services to account for numbers attending this event. You can sign up by visiting www.eventbrite.com and searching ‘Hospice Midnight Memory Walk 2022’ or by phoning the Fundraising Office on (028) 3026 7711. Registration is only £10.00 per person and £5.00 for under 16’s, with an additional minimum sponsorship of £20.00 per person. In return for your great efforts, each walker will receive their very own Midnight Memory Walk medal. This 6K walk is a family event, although under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Once registered, you will receive a walker’s information pack with everything you need to know about joining the event on the night and tips on how to raise sponsorship.
On the evening, the sign-in desk will open at St Colman’s College from 10.00pm – 10.45pm. The walk will then commence at 11pm sharp. The evening includes beautiful live music, light refreshments and a dedicated memory wall of messages for those who are loved and missed. Please note, unfortunately earlier walkers cannot be accommodated.
Make every step count for your local Hospice this September and sign up today.
