Our ladies walk is back with a bang!!!
We are asking women to join us on Fri 14 Oct 2016 for our revamped fundraising favourite; our ladies walk!
Glow With The Flow will see a whole army of girl power come together with the single mission of helping Wirral Hospice St John's to raise essential funds for the care and support of our patients and their loved ones.
Our 5 mile circular route will begin and finish from West Kirby's Leisure Centre (lots of free parking in the nearby area). Walkers can arrive to sign in from 6pm, with a professional warm-up before the walk starts at about 7.30pm.
Our ladies walks did used to start at midnight and were enormous fun over the years but feedback has steered us to starting our night walk at a more respectable time - for younger supporters to also join in the fun and so that people can finish the walk and still get a good night's sleep in (or trip the light fantastic in West Kirby afterwards perhaps!)...
Registration is now open!
£10 early bird (female 18+) up to 31st Sep
£15 1st-12th Oct (female 18+)
£5 youth (girls aged 10-18)
Glow sticks and goody bags for every walker!
We kindly ask each participant or group of walkers to raise sponsorship for our charity. We can provide paper forms and help you to set up online fundraising pages... We appreciate that not everyone has a big family and friend network or works with lots of colleagues so sponsorship can be scary. We haven't set a suggested minimum for this year but here are some examples of what could be done if people are sponsored:
If 200 women raise £15 = £3,000
If 200 women raise £25 = £5,000
If 200 women raise £50 = £10,000
If 200 women raise £100= £20,000
If 200 women raise £150 = £30,000
So you can see just how much this walk could help our Hospice if each walker or group raises sponsorship through their participation.
