Returning in 2021!

They are both legendary in our city, so it’s with sadness that we have to tell you that Midnight Walk and Men’s Day Out are cancelled until safer times next year. 

It’s the right thing to do, but we know that – like us – you’ll be disappointed these much-loved events aren’t happening in 2020. We recognise, too, that this might feel particularly hard if you look forward to the occasions to pay tribute to a lost loved one and keep their memory alive. That’s why we have an exciting solution!

Make your own Midnight Walk (24 July – 31 August) sponsored by Nash & Co Solicitors provides flexibility and fun for you and your household and/or friends while raising much-needed funds so St Luke’s can continue helping the local families who so desperately need us.

Simply choose your event type, route and time, and then register your event and share your JustGiving page with your family and friends.

It’s exciting way to have fun walking, jogging or running with people from your household (men and children welcome) or a few friends* – including the four-legged variety! – while raising money to help keep our community is a kinder place for terminally ill people approaching the end of their lives.

If you’ve lost someone special, this is also an opportunity to pay tribute to them while creating new memories.

Signing up is easy and completely FREE. It’s the sponsorship you’ll raise by sharing your JustGiving page with family, friends and neighbours that will make a vital difference for the local families who desperately need our compassionate care and support in these turbulent times.

Over the years since Midnight Walk and Men’s Day Out began, we’ve beamed with pride seeing so many of you stepping out for our charity at the much-loved events. It’s now more than ever though, that we need to see that community spirit in action, so please sign up to Make your own Midnight Walk today by registering below.

As a registered participant of this year’s Men’s Day Out or Midnight Walk, we are happy to reserve your place at our respective 2021 events. We will assume that you would like your registration to be carried over to the new dates, however if you can no longer attend your registered event, please inform us so that we can discuss whether you wish for your registration to be converted to a donation or request a refund. We will aim to respond to your request within the next five working days.

Please email funadmin@stlukes-hospice.org.uk or check your email inbox, an email should be waiting for you with instructions.

We would recommend you speak to your sponsors to explain the situation to see if they are happy to honour it on this occasion. If your sponsors would like you to return their money, the responsibility is yours to do so. If the money has already been paid in, they will need to contact us directly, so this can be looked in to and actioned.

Where will the money I raise in sponsorship go?

At St Luke’s we provide specialist end of life care for over 1,746 people each year across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall. We have a community nursing team that travels throughout the region, caring for people in their own homes; a hospital team that ensures patients admitted to Derriford Hospital receive expert advice and our specialist unit where patients stay with us for bespoke pain relief.

With only part funding from the government, we rely heavily on the support of our local community to raise the £7.8 million a year it takes to help the people in desperate need of our services. Choosing to register for the Midnight Walk is your chance to make a real difference to people’s lives.
