Marie Curie suggests “Walk Ten” for West Midlands Hospice
Get your walking boots out and picnic supplies in. Marie Curie’s 10k evening fundraising walk, Walk Ten, at Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire on SATURDAY 19th JULY 2014 is now less than 2 weeks away.
There’s still time to register. It’s £10 per person and everyone is asked to raise as much as possible in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care. All the funds raised will help Marie Curie provide care, free of charge, to terminally ill people in their own homes and in the West Midlands Marie Curie Hospice.
People who have taken part in past Walk Ten events have pinpointed what made the event special to them:
“Lovely location and a great atmosphere.”
“Knowing that it was for a good cause and the friendly atmosphere. Also seeing the nurses who cared for my partner.”
“The ‘togetherness’, everyone had the same purpose for being there and everyone was passionate about why they were there.”
The Shugborough event starts at 5.30pm after which, there will be entertainment for the whole family throughout the evening such as fireworks, live music and picnics.
Walk Ten at the Shugborough Estate is raising funds to make it possible for Marie Curie to provide more care to terminally ill patients and vital emotional support to their families, at the time when they need it most.
Registration closes at 9am on Monday 14th July. Children under 16 go free. If you miss registration you can still turn up and register on the day for £20.
