Event description

Description

St Michael's Hospice Moonlight and Memories Walk is a 10k coastal walk by the light of a full moon, from The White Rock Hotel along to Galley Hill and back again, and is a fun event for all the family to take part in.*

Write memories of your loved ones on a ribbon (provided by the Hospice) and tie it to our 'memory wall' at Hastings Pier as a dedication to them. The ribbons will then stay on the 'memory wall' for one month.

Water and snacks are provided at the half way point and a lovely post walk supper is available for you to enjoy after the walk at The White Rock Hotel.

Please note that the walk starts at 9pm, however registration opens at 8pm - all walkers must register on the night and sign themselves back in at the end of the walk, so we can confirm everyone has returned safely.

There is a warm up at 8.45pm, in front of the pier and this is led by Jas of JasFit, she then leads the walk.

Fundraising for this event is highly recommended. You will each receive a sponsorship form for the walk however, you can also raise funds for the Hospice in a variety of fun ways such as a cake sale, a mufti day at work or even by selling kisses!

It may help to know that:

  • £16.50 will pay for one hours In-Patient nursing

  • £55 will pay for one day’s worth of nursing supplies, including medication for one patient

  • £130 will pay for a patient to visit Day Services.

*Under 16's must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Please read the FAQ's below and the Terms and Conditions for full details.

FAQs

Is this a race?

This is not a race. You can walk as fast or as slow as you would like. We have a leader of the walk, who we ask everyone to remain behind, so no one gets lost and we also have a sweeper, who will always remain behind the last person of the walk. We like to make sure everyone gets back safely and having a leader and a sweeper helps us to achieve this.

Is the Moonlight and Memories Walk timed?

No, take it at your own pace and make the most of the experience. We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a finish time.

Can children take part?

Absolutely! This is a family event. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. (Please refer to the event Terms and Conditions).

Do I have to raise sponsorship?

Fundraising for this event is highly recommended and each participant will receive a sponsorship form. Please see the above costs for some of our services at the Hospice, to understand how important raising sponsorship can be.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, dogs are more than welcome on the walk, although please keep them on a lead. The White Rock Hotel is also dog friendly.

What should I wear and will it get ruined?

All participants are provided with a Moonlight and Memories t-shirt however, if you choose not to wear this you won't be excluded from the walk. The event doesn't start until 9pm, so it can get chilly. Please make sure you dress appropriately. Trainers or walking shoes are highly recommened for this event. 10k is quite a distance, so clothing and foot wear should be pratical and comfortable.

No, please arrive with limited personal belongings. Any personal items will need to be taken on the walk with you.

Are tickets transferable or refundable?

What happens if i am unable to collect my t shirt in the above allocated times and dates?

All uncollected t shirt's will be brought to The White Rock Hotel on the night of the event and can be collected from there, once registration has begun at 8pm.

What pen should I use to write on the ribbon?

Permanent markers and Sharpies bleed on this material. It is recommended to use a biro.

Where is the memory wall located?
