Description

Once upon a time, in a tiny village not too far from Chorley...

The Sleep walk under the stars returned!! We would love for you to join us for some Midsummer magic by dressing as a hero or villain from your favourite childhood fairy-tale to take part in this years sponsored 10k night time walk

On Saturday, July 22nd we need to raise as much money as possible for our Derian Dreams Campaign.

The provision of respite care is a lifeline to many of the families we support, notleast because it gives them an opportunity to catch up on much needed sleep while their child is being cared for at the hospice. For many of our families, the nature of their child’s illness means that it impacts on their entire family, with sleep deprivation a consequence of broken nights and medication schedules.

The Sleepwalk Under the Stars - The Fairy Tale Edition is a focal event in our bid to raise enough funds to provide every family with the opportunity to access respite care and the chance to get a good night’s sleep, and we need YOUR help to make our dreams a reality!!

There will be an amazing spellbinding atmosphere on the night, so come along and be part of a wonderful team walking for Derian. The event will begin at 9pm and will finish with a midnight feast at the end of the walk.

The event is open to everyone over the age of 8, so you can enter with your friends, family, college or workmates.

So come on, join the dream team! Fill out your registration form, choose your outfit (which is optional) and start training for the Sleepwalk Under the Stars! You'll be helping us make the most of every moment for the children of Derian House...

Terms and Conditions

If you wish to walk with friends please guarantee your places by sending in your entries together if possible. Alternatively, please specify who you wish to walk with, giving their name and address so we can make sure that we link you with the right person.

If you wish to register a whole group of people together, you may do so as long as you complete an individual registration form for each person. If you wish to cover all the registration fees with one cheque or card, again you may do so, but you must ensure that payment is made for the correct number of people and amount. If we have to contact you because there is a deficit in the amount you have sent, it will result in a delay in registering all the people in your group. If you’re paying by cheque, please put your name and address on the reverse side.

Your registration fee covers all expenses, provides you with a wristband and backpack, and secures your place on the walk. Please note that this fee is not refundable, even if, at a later date, you decide not to walk.

If you are unable to walk for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible.

Please note you cannot simply re-allocate your place to someone else. For insurance purposes we need to know exactly who is walking on the night, and if someone has simply taken your place, when they arrive to check in on the night, their name will not appear on any of our registration lists. However, if you do know someone who would like to take your place, please let us know in advance, as they will still need to register and pay their own individual registration fee. You will also need to return your sponsorship form to us even if it contains no entries whatever.

There is no minimum sponsorship amount specified as a condition of entry to the Sleepwalk. However, this is a fundraising event and we would ask that you endeavour to raise as much money as possible for Derian House from your participation in the walk. As a charity which receives minimal funding from central government, we rely almost exclusively on our own efforts and the generosity of people in the wider community to help us raise the £3.85 million we will need this year. Therefore we are hopeful that the money you pledge on the night will make a vital contribution to helping us to continue to provide the specialised care our children so desperately need. Please endeavour to collect your sponsorship money and send or deliver it to the hospice within 12 weeks from the date of the event. All the sponsorship money you collect must be passed to Derian House and may not be used for expenses of any description.

Please ensure you bring your sponsorship form along with you on the night and hand it to the person who checks you in. It will be returned to you at the end of the walk. Please be aware that the Sleepwalk is not a race, and therefore you will not be allowed to run or jog. However, power walking is allowed as long as you don’t attempt to pass the marshals at the head of the walk.

The Sleepwalk Under the Stars the Fairy Tale edition in Lancashire is organised for the benefit of Derian House Children’s Hospice, and is not connected with any other walk of the same name in any other part of the UK, or with any other midnight walk in the area.
