The Lantern Walk
This July, St Oswald’s Hospice will be joined by hundreds of people from across the region, on a very special walk in memory of our loved ones. We would love for you to be part of an evening of celebration and join us for the 2017 Lantern Walk at the Rising Sun Country Park on Saturday 1st July.
The Lantern Walk is a moving and poignant celebration of life and the chance to reflect on those we love, but are no longer with us.
You do not need to have any previous connection to St Oswald's to remember someone in this way.
In partnership with Smooth Radio and sponsored by Weightwatchers, The Lantern Walk is an opportunity for you and your family and friends to come together and walk a 5km route at The Rising Sun Country Park, Newcastle in memory of a loved one.
The fundraising walk takes place at dusk and walkers will carry a paper lantern to light the way along the route as the sun sets, in celebration of the life of the person or people they are remembering. Walkers are encouraged to make a donation or raise funds for St Oswald’s in memory of their loved one to help fund the care of patients both now and in the future. The event will open with music and entertainment from Smooth Radio’s Steve Colman before the walk begins.
There are two ways in which you can take part:
