With mass participation fundraising events off the cards this year, St Richard’s Hospice needs your support more than ever. We have found new ways of working so that much loved events, such as our Waterways Walk, can still go ahead – even if they look a little different.
You can still dust off those walking boots and enjoy the beautiful Worcestershire Waterways, while supporting our care, but this year at a date and time to suit you as the event goes virtual!
Taking part in our virtual Waterways Walk is easy! Choose from either an 11-mile one-way route or a 22-mile return walk, which you can complete at any point in the months of September or October. We’ll provide a map, directions and everyone who signs up will receive their very own St Richard’s Hospice t-shirt.
Of course, the other thing we ask is that you raise as much as you can in sponsorship so we can continue to be there for patients and loved ones when they need us most. With our shops only just reopening after months of closure, and most of our fundraising events cancelled, the coronavirus pandemic is taking its toll on charities like us. But with your help, and our broader community of supporters, we are hopeful we can come through these difficult days together.
It is important to take on the virtual Waterways Walk safely and in line with Government recommendations about social distancing. Please remember to:
– avoid peak times on the tow paths, if possible, e.g. weekends and midday.
– stay 2 metres apart from other people not from your household.
**Please note: Due to construction works being undertaken on the towpath between Sixways and Tibberton, this year, the 22-mile walk will be a return route meaning walkers will return the way they came after reaching the halfway point at The Anchor**
