Strolling in Memory of Loved Ones
Alice House Hospice partners Co-op Funeralcare are sponsoring the charity’s Memory Stroll for the second consecutive year; the event takes place on 19th April.
The event, now in its second year, has been supported by the Co-op since it began in 2019. It is a peaceful Sunday morning walk along the seafront at Hartlepool’s picturesque and historic Headland, in which participants walk and raise sponsorship in memory of a loved one who has died.
The Memory Stroll is also supported by the Heugh Battery Museum, which acts as the start and endpoint of the circular route. Walkers will receive a pin badge to wear in tribute, as well as free access to the Museum on the day of the event.
Open to all ages the event is priced as follows:
- adults £7:50
- U16s: £2.50
- U5s: free
Once walkers are registered, they will receive full event information and a sponsorship pack.
Nicola Winwood of Alice House Hospice said, “We were really happy with the success of our first Memory Stroll and with the help of all our walkers, the Heugh Battery Museum and of course our kind sponsors Co-op Funeralcare, we were able to raise a fantastic £2,500 to help provide care for local Hospice patients.”
Daniel Laughton of the Co-op works very closely with Hospice staff and also takes part in the event with his family said, “It is great that we can be involved again in this event, having been a part of it since the start – we are very proud to have contributed to its success and I am really looking forward to taking part this year and helping the event to grow and develop. Hopefully, we will raise even more money this time for a fantastic local cause.”
