GOING THE EXTRA MILE

Moonlit Memories WalkMoonlit Memories Walk is the flagship event for Rowans Hospice which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. Over the last nine years, almost 10,000 people have taken part raising £1.8 million overall. Rowans Hospice is looking for local companies to sponsor the Moonlit Memories Walk in its 10th year to ensure that more money can be spent on care for local people.

This year’s event takes place on 10 June, starting at 10pm with a choice of a 10-mile or 6-mile route along Southsea seafront, through Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and past the Spinnaker Tower. Local companies and organisations can get involved by entering teams of walkers or providing marshals to help direct the walkers and give them cheers of encouragement around the course. A corporate partnership can be beneficial to both parties as sponsoring a mile of the walk will provide promotional opportunities to hundreds of local people.

Eliza Dunn, Corporate Fund-raiser at Rowans Hospice, said: “We are extremely grateful for all the corporate support we receive; including gifts in kind, volunteering and sponsorship. Any help we receive from businesses enables the Hospice to continue to provide essential care for people affected by life-limiting illnesses in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire. By sponsoring the Moonlit Memories Walk you will not only be giving local people the opportunity to take part in a special event to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones but also their fund-raising will directly benefit others who need the services.”
