Thank you for stepping up for #TeamStGiles this Summer Solstice!

With our Solstice Walk event sadly cancelled, we’re grateful so many of you still sparkled up in support of our Solstice Stroll.

By completing 10km or 10,000 steps this June, you’ve helped us to continue our vital care during these incredibly uncertain times. Plus, your Solstice Selfies have certainly put a big smile on our faces!

Once again, thank you so much for your support and hopefully we can celebrate the Summer Solstice together in 2021.

Share your #SolsticeSelfie and sponsorship

If you haven’t yet shared your #SolsticeSelfie with us, we’d love to see them!

Tag us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or email our fundraising team on fundraising@stgileshospice.com.

Plus, don’t forget to pay in your Solstice Stroll sponsorship. You can do this online, in person, by post or by phone. Find out more here.

Thanks a million!

Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers who came out in their hundreds and made our 13th Solstice Walk in 2019 a night to remember.

Since Solstice Walk launched, our fantastic fundraising fairies have raised over £1 million to fund care and support for local people and their families living with a terminal illness.

If you still have sponsorship money to pay in, you can do it here.

Want to help in 2021?

Your support doesn’t have to end there! We’re already thinking about how to make Solstice Walk 2021 even bigger and better.

The Solstice Walk route is supported by marshals, who help cheer you on and point you in the right direction. We rely heavily on volunteers to do this and would love it if you could spread the word to your friends and family, to see if they can help!

We’re here for you… because you’re here for us

“We will be forever grateful to St Giles for what they gave to grandad.”

Laura Fitzgerald and “Team Dougie” took part in the 2019 Solstice Walk to thank St Giles Hospice for caring for her grandad, Doug Brown.

“From the moment my grandad arrived at St Giles, he was like a different person,” said Laura. “Every time we visited, he was always sat in his chair by the window, chatting and laughing with everyone who would come by and sharing memories of his life.

“We will be forever grateful to St Giles for what they gave to grandad. They allowed us to spend as much time as we could with him and helped make the time he had left so very special.”
