Event description

Description

Please come and join us at the beautiful grounds of Beale Park and take part in our much-loved annual event, the Forget-Me-Not-Walk, kindly supported by Balfour Beatty.

During the walk supporters will have an opportunity to gather with friends, family and our hospice staff to celebrate the lives of those who are gone but not forgotten.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Thames in Berkshire, the walk goes though secluded woodland and passes along the grassy banks of the river.

By taking on either the 10km or the family-friendly 5km route you can help us raise vital funds needed for Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice so we can continue to provide care for local people and their loved ones at the most difficult time of their lives.

Guests can write a dedication for those they would like to remember on a Forget-Me-Not card, which will be displayed on our special memory tree.

Please note: Registration is from 10.00am and the walk itself starts at 11.00am.


Sign up an individual, family or team

Select 'Individual' to sign up as an Adult or Child, or to book a special Family ticket (of two adults and up to three children).

Want to sign up as a group of friends? Select 'Team', create a name for your team, register and pay for yourself, and then start inviting your teammates! Your team can have up to 20 members including adults and children.


Your ticket includes free park entry and a t-shirt

Afterwards, walk participants have free entry to Beale Park Wildlife Park where you can enjoy nature at its best with a variety of gardens, sculptures, trails and lakes as well as a fantastic mix of animals and attractions.

Your entry fee also includes a Sue Ryder t-shirt. Refreshments will also be available to purchase after the walk.


Why your sponsorship is so important

We would love to encourage you to raise an additional £60 of sponsorship per person. Just £60 could provide one session of bereavement counselling for people and families struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one.

If you’re taking part as a family or team, we encourage you to raise £140 in sponsorship as this could fund one of our hospice nurses for a day.

All our expert care and hospice facilities are absolutely free of charge; any funds you raise will ensure that these crucial local services are maintained.
