WALKING FOR CORNWALL HOSPICE CARE

With lighter days ahead we look forward to many walks and sponsored challenges. Having successfully negotiating our first encounter ‘The St Pirans Walk’ derived from local footpaths around Carharrack, St Day and Mount Ambrose, we now turn our sights to the greater challenge of Walking the Cornish Pilgrimage for Cornwall Hospice Care. The fortnight event commences after Easter when on St Georges Day we make our way to Morwenstow to begin the 200-mile route which will also include our local section known as the Gwennap Pilgrimage; this will be walked on the May Bank Holiday Saturday 4th May.

FUNDRAISING FOR CORNWALL HOSPICE

Those signing up to do any part of the challenge or The Gwennap Polgrimage will in effect be supporting the charity as their registration fee of £10 goes to Cornwall Hospice Care. In addition individuals can contact Judith Lawton at Hayle for a sponsor form. We also invite walkers to set up their own justgiving page or ask friends and family to donate at our fundraising link below.

We will supply participants with Passports to Walk; Certificates of Achievement and Fundraising for CHC on completion and an info leaflet about The Cornish Pilgrimage supporting CHC. The leaflets are part of our promotional campaign for the charity and contain our justgiving link which will also be built into my website and social media; the leaflets are delivered to businesses all around Cornwall and the tourist offices too.

PROMOTION

We intend to distribute posters to promote the Cornish Pilgrimage as a National Discovery Walk and those subscribing to it will also be helping our local charity; the walk registration is £10 and participants will receive a passport to collect stamps and signatures from churches/inns and B&Bs.

 

To enquire about sponsor forms please phone Judith at St Julia’s Hospice, Hayle on:
