The BIG Summer Walk - The only hospice walk
Last year we had the Midnight Walk and the Winter Walk. This year we are bringing the two events together for one BIG walk. It’s all about the summer and we’re turning up the heat with our brand new BIG Summer Walk.
Location: Marquis Drive, Cannock Chase (WS12 4PW)
Join us on the only hospice walk this year as hundreds of supporters come together for a day of fun and fundraising in the great British summertime. Whether walking in memory, to get fit, or just for fun, your support will help to provide free care services at the hospice and in the community for patients and their families. Thank you.

Andy Foster from AFSystems has kindly sponsored this brand new event. AFsytems had previously sponsored the Winter Walk since 2008 and we are thrilled he has joined the BIG Summer Walk. Event sponsors help to absorb the costs of events which means that the sponsorship you raise goes towards hospice care rather than event costs. Thansk Andy!
We'd also like to welcome Acorns professional lettings services who are joining us as headline sponsors with AFSystems.
Finally we'd like to welcome Mercedes in Stafford for sponsoring the event.
