COVID-19 events update: With England now in Step 4 of the Government roadmap out of lockdown, we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic with the hope of bringing more of our exciting events back – including Hero Walk.

We have a duty of care to everyone and the safety, health and wellbeing of our supporters, volunteers and staff is our top priority. As we have done throughout the pandemic, we will continue to follow Government guidance and proceed with caution. All upcoming events will have some COVID-19 measures in place – please respect these and follow our event terms and conditions to ensure COVID-19 guidelines are met. Please read these carefully when signing up.

As we have seen so often over this past year, no-one can predict what the future holds and Government guidance can change overnight. With this in mind, please do bear with us as we try our very best to bring our events programme back. You might notice that event dates differ to normal, to allow for restrictions to be lifted, and we may have to adapt, amend or even cancel our events if it would be wrong to continue with them at that time. Should we be forced to cancel events, we will make sure that our supporters have everything they need to complete the event from their own homes or own community.

We sincerely hope that Coronavirus restrictions do not result in further cancellations or changes, but our participants will be kept up-to-date. We very much appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing our events safely return, raising much-needed funds for our patients, and their families, who are living with a terminal illness.

Thank you so much for your support – we have never needed you more than we need you today.

Hundreds of heroes and their doggie sidekicks joined us on Saturday 25th September to make memories in a mask at our Hero Walk.

A huge thank you to all of our walkers and volunteers. We hope you had an amazing time – and we can’t wait to see what next year brings!

It takes a community to make a hospice. Thank you. 

Louise’s Hero Walk…

“The Hero Walk was a celebration of Nan and a way to thank St Giles for the support they gave us.”

For Louise Harding, the Hero Walk was the perfect way to pay tribute to her hero, her Nan, who passed away at St Giles after receiving end of life care.

“My Nan got exactly the care she needed at St Giles – one-to-one care tailored to the individual. If she needed anything we just had to call out and people were there straight away,” Louise explained.

Louise recruited a team of fellow superheroes, including three doggie sidekicks, to take on the Hero Walk in memory of her Nan.

“It was really special because everyone was walking for a reason. Everyone had their own superhero in mind, which gave it a real meaning.

“St Giles Hospice is such a valuable resource for the area and we want to raise funds for the future so that St Giles will be there for other families like ours. One day other members of my family might need St Giles and it’s a real comfort to know that it’s there.”

Join Louise in remembering your hero at our Hero Walk and help us raise vital funds to provide care for local people, and their families, living with a terminal illness.
