Men’s Day Out 2020 has been cancelled.

Following official safety advice relating to mass participation events during the COVID-19 pandemic, we sadly have to announce the cancellation of our city’s best-loved charity walk – Men’s Day Out – kindly powered by IU Energy.

Men’s Day Out will return in 2021!

However we are not letting lockdown restrictions dampen the community spirit of our many ardent supporters though. Quite the reverse! Having made the difficult decision to cancel this event, after previously hoping to just postpone – and recognising the disappointment this will bring to the thousands of men who had signed up to take part – we are inviting local men and women to create their own fundraising challenge instead.

Sponsorship money raised by those who sign up for our Make your own Midnight Walk event this summer, in collaboration with Nash & Co Solicitors (24 July – 31 August), will help ensure we can continue to provide bespoke end of life care for terminally ill patients at home, in hospital and at our specialist unit at Turnchapel, and support them and their loved ones during these turbulent times.
