Solstice Walk is our biggest single fundraising event of the year – and we want you to be involved!

On Saturday 16th June, hundreds of women from all over the region will gather in Lichfield to get involved in the fun that is this ladies-only night time walk around the city.

Grab your fairy wings, round up your friends and family, and revel in the unforgettable atmosphere while raising vital funds for your local hospice.

The Details

Entry is £16 per entrant, which entitles all participants to come to our Solstice Sunset Party and take home a wonderful goody bag.

The Solstice Walk starts and ends at the Friary Grange Leisure Centre in Lichfield.

You can choose from a full 9 mile walk (2 laps of the 4.5 mile course) or a single lap of 4.5 miles if you prefer.

You have to be at least 13 years old to take part. (Please note anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult).


The evening starts with our Solstice Sunset Party from 7.30pm with lots of fun filled activities, music and dancing to get everyone in the party mood and raring to go for this incredible event.


The walk starts at 10pm as the sun sets over Lichfield.


The team from St Giles will cheer you across the finish line with a hot drink & snack, alongside a goody bag and that all important medal… well as a massive thank you from us for being such wonderful supporters of St Giles.

How The Solstice Walk Helps

Natalie witnessed first-hand the care that patients receive at St Giles when both her parents, Cynthia and Ian Ewan, were referred after being diagnosed with cancer. They sadly passed away just six months apart.

Natalie completed her first Solstice Walk in 2012 and explains; “It’s such a fun event to be involved with and it’s an achievable walk for women of all ages and all levels of fitness.”

Natalie says: “The care my parents received from St Giles Hospice was simply tremendous – and the care we received as a family too. Seeing the work they do and knowing what a difference it made to us gave me a huge passion to want to support the charity.”
