LOVELY MEMORIES: Northwood hospice holds ‘memory walk’ to raise money for care

 Published on: 1st June 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Michael Sobell Hospice Charity will hold their first-ever Summer Memory Walk on Saturday July 30th.

With only 40% of the funding provided by the NHS, the charity can use the money raised to provide the best end-of-life care that is ‘peaceful, comfortable and free from worry and pain.’

Each year the Michael Sobell Hospice struggles to raise the remaining £1.3 million extra funding needed to provide all the experts in palliative and end-of-life care to support the people in need. 

The charity is ‘inviting friends and families to come together and walk side-by-side to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones.’ People will also be able to write special dedications to their loved ones on a pop-up memory wall.

The walk itself is broken into two routes 2km and 10km and can be walked solo or as part of a team. 

The paths will go through several beautiful areas including Taylors’ School in Moor Park, Hampermill Lake and Croxley Common Moor. Alongside this each walker will be given an event t-shirt to memorialize the day.

On the school grounds there will also be barbeque food, music and children’s entertainment to enjoy.

To participate it costs just £15 and under 13’s walk for free.

You can register online at the MSH Summer Memory Walk or contact the fundraising team through email at or by calling 020 3909 0446.
