The Hospice Walk
Saturday 15th May 2021
For the second year due to the pandemic, we are not permitted to organise our “official” annual Hospice Walk. Instead, participants have chosen to walk 26, 13 or 7 miles from their front door or other selected route, on Saturday 15th May.
If you spot any of our walkers out and about on 15th May be sure to give them a wave and a cheer as they complete their chosen distance in support of Oakhaven.
Taking part this year...
Could you help Oakhaven further by raising funds through sponsorship?
If you prefer to do your fundraising online, you could set up a JustGiving page - click here to get started.
All funds raised from The Hospice Walk will help local people during the most difficult of times. With only a small proportion of our costs funded by government sources, every donation makes a difference, enabling us to continue providing exceptional care, comfort and support to patients facing end of life and their loved ones, both within the Hospice itself and out in the New Forest, Totton and Waterside community.
Tell us about your Hospice Walk!
Don’t forget to share with us a picture of your tracked route and completed miles, along with that proud selfie with your medal! Just tag @oakhavenhospice and use the hashtag #thehospicewalk
