Miles in Memory

Miles in Memory


Melaine Francis 2Miles in Memory is a unique opportunity to remember or celebrate the life of a loved one ​by choosing to walk in their memory.

We’re inviting families and friends to walk together in a place that holds a ​​special meaning for you. The walk can be as short or long as you like on a day of your choice. It might take in town or countryside at twilight, sunrise over the sea, or a brunch stop at a favourite café.

The route and timing of your walk is completely up to you – all we ask is that you consider making a donation or raising sponsorship in memory of your loved one. Help their legacy live on and help more local families to get the specialist care they need to stay at home.

We hope that Miles in Memory will give you the chance to connect with your loved ones as you celebrate the life of someone special together.  

Follow these simple steps to make your Miles in Memory a time to remember

Choose a distance and day that suits you

You may wish to enjoy a short leisurely ramble or take on a more demanding challenge.

We've taken inspiration from how much it costs to fund hospice care for local patients and their families to create some suggested distances for how far you could walk:

  • £20 pays for an end-of-life care box to hold the equipment that nurses need when caring for a patient at the end of life. Why not walk for 20 minutes everyday one month?  
  • £30 provides an hour of specialist care from a hospice at home nurse helping patients to stay at home with their families and make every moment matter. Could you walk 30 miles?
  • £675 provides the Night Team for one night, giving essential care and support for patients and families whatever time of night so they are not alone. Could you walk through the night whilst our nurses are still out there caring for our patients?

Select a location

Perhaps there's somewhere that reminds you of your loved one or a place that you visited together? There may be somewhere you wish you could have gone to together that you didn’t get the opportunity to before you said goodbye? Whether it's rolling fields with beautiful sunshine, beside the lake where you used to always feed the ducks or watching the sunset by the sea, your Miles in Memory location is your choice.
