Remember loved ones at hospice’s first walk in Oundle

People are being encouraged to put their best foot forward and sign up for a special sponsored walk around picturesque Oundle to celebrate the lives of loved ones.  The Forget Me Not Walk, which will take place on Sunday 29th September, is being organised by a dedicated committee of volunteers to raise funds for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

Starting at Barnwell Country Park, this 3.5 mile family-friendly walk will have a reflective but positive tone, encouraging families and friends to remember loved ones and celebrate their lives.  Walkers will travel through historic Oundle market town, then on a journey through local scenery and along the river before heading back to Barnwell. They will be able to wear a pin-on sign in memory of their loved one.  If walkers want to bring along their pooches, they are very welcome!

The walk, which is being supported by Oundle’s Beans Coffee Stop and Inkwell Printing, will end with a special celebration back at the Park, where there will be an area for picnics, a BBQ, community stalls and a reflection area with Sue Ryder staff on hand to talk to if needed.

Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice offers compassionate palliative care for people living with life-limiting conditions and support to their families free of charge; however, it needs to raise £2.4 million this year to provide it.  Earlier this year, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice held a successful Walk to Remember event in Peterborough and saw how wonderful it was for families and loved ones; it was then decided to do a similar event in Oundle, which currently has no commemorative walk.

Tickets cost £9.99 for adults, £4.99 for children or £24.99 for a group ticket (two adults/two children, or three adults).
