Midnight Walk 2020

Postponed

We believe that we must do all that we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community. Following very careful consideration, along with the full support of our sponsor Nash & Co Solicitors, we have taken the precautionary measure of postponing St Luke’s mass participation fundraising event: Midnight Walk, due to take place on 11 July 2020. This will be rearranged to take place on a Saturday evening later in 2020.

This is one of the largest fundraising events in the St Luke’s calendar and was set to raise a record amount of funding to help us care for terminally ill people at end of life. However, the health and wellbeing of our patients, supporters, staff, volunteers and all our loved ones is our overriding concern and as a healthcare provider we give the utmost priority to taking every reasonable step to protect them. We also recognise the responsibility we have to our wider community.

We can only deliver outstanding end of life care because of the support and generosity of our community, so having to postpone this major event will have a financial impact on St Luke’s but it is the right thing to do.

As a participant of Midnight Walk, we are happy to reserve your registration at our rescheduled event due to take place later in the year. Please bear with us while we establish the exact date.

We will assume that you would like your registration to be carried to the rescheduled event, however if you can no longer attend, 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 aim to respond to your request within the next five working days.

If you are the lead contact for a registered group, please kindly forward this email to your group’s members.

We thank you in advance for your patience during this time, whilst our team experiences a high volume of communications.

How you can help

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.
