Lantern Walk

Saturday 12th February 2022, 4:30 – 7:30pm

Join us at dusk to walk a beautiful 1.5-mile route around the grounds of National Trust Croome, and help us light up the night sky in the run-up to Valentine’s Day.

Whether you’re joining us to remember a loved one or just to enjoy the picturesque setting of Croome, the evening is set to be a magical experience for all. All participants over the age of five will receive a lantern and LED candle to carry, lighting up the parkland of Croome as we make our way around the route in procession.

We encourage all participants to fundraise as much as possible, it is the additional money raised through sponsorship and donations that makes a huge difference to the individuals and families we support and care for.

There is no minimum sponsorship or donation amount, any money raised is greatly appreciated.
