The Mayor’s Sponsored Walk is once again in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care. This year it takes place on Sunday 3 September 2017 – so get the date in your diaries to take part in the Hayle Walk and support your local hospice!
There is a choice of two circular walks to accommodate walkers of all ages and abilities. The 5 mile walk starts at 2.30pm and the 2 mile walk at 3.30pm.
Cornwall Hospice Care is a Cornish charity that works 24 hours a day to provide specialist care for people with terminal illnesses. The clinical teams support patients and their families at St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle, Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell and in Cornwall’s hospitals, care homes and where necessary, in the community. The charity also runs a 24 hour advice line for other healthcare professionals.
It costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care offered to in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded by the NHS. The other £4 million is raised via the support of people in Cornwall who leave the hospice legacies, support fundraising events, play its lottery and visit its 31 shops. Every pound counts and what is raised in Cornwall stays here to provide this very specialist care at no cost to the patient or their family.
By taking part in the Hayle Sponsored Walk you will be helping to raise much needed funds for your local adult hospice.
