Severn Valley Walk 2020

September 26

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION*
We have taken the decision to postpone our Severn Valley Walk 2020 in light of world events at the moment. We very much hope to run the event at a later date in 2021, giving you the chance to enjoy this beautiful walk and iconic railway trip. In the meantime, you may wish to join us at another event, visit www.strichards.org.uk/events to see other rescheduled events happening this Autumn.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the fundraising team on 01905 958 262 or email appeals@strichards.org.uk.


Our Severn Valley Walk allows you to enjoy a 4, 7 or 14-mile walk, followed by a relaxing return trip on the iconic Severn Valley Railway!

A chance to raise funds for the care we provide to patients and their families across Worcestershire, we ask those joining us to pledge to raise £30 or more.

All routes start at Bewdley Station where free parking is available (DY12 1BL).  Here you’ll receive your walking notes and be guided to the start of the Severn Way, passing beautiful countryside along the River Severn. It’s also a great opportunity to train spot too!

There are tea rooms and pubs along the way to take a break and, once you have completed the walk, you can relax and let the train take the strain for your return journey. You’ll also receive a well-deserved certificate and medal, with dogs receiving their very own Doggie certificate too!

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
