Hospice launches new event - the Walk of Memories

12 March 2015

A SPONSORED walk through Pennington Flash Country Park in memory of loved ones is being organised by Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

New for 2015 the walk will take place on the afternoon of Sunday, May 3rd, when men, women and children are invited to walk around the park.

At the end everyone taking part will be invited to place a message or photograph on a Tree of Memories in remembrance of a loved one.

Maxine Armstrong, Fundraising and Lottery Manager, said: "We organise a walk every year but this time we wanted to do something different and hopefully more meaningful. The Walk of Memories is an opportunity for friends and family to spend an afternoon together and mark the life of a loved one while raising funds for the Hospice."

Two walks will be open of 5K and 10K in length and at the finish participants will be able to enjoy refreshments, a funfair, live music and other attractions.

All those taking part are asked to raise a minimum of £25 sponsorship.
