Hospice says “thank you” to reimagined midnight walkers
Last push on the final day of new version of the Hospice’s biggest annual fundraiser
Today is the final day for this year’s Reimagined Katharine House Hospice Midnight Walk. As the final few walkers use today’s sunny weather to do their bit, the Hospice have said “thank you” to everyone who has joined in.
A video has been released featuring some of the people at the Hospice on the Aynho Road in Adderbury thanking everyone who participated in this years Midnight Walk Reimagined. In the video one of the team said, “The Midnight Walk is our biggest annual fund raiser and we thank you for embracing the changes this year to make sure that the event was still able to go ahead. The Hospice really needs your support so let’s make every moment matter”.

After the normal June Midnight Walk had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions the Hospice “reimagined” the event in a new virtual format. Supporters were encouraged to walk where they want, when they want and with whom they want, raising funds for the Katharine House as they did so. The aim was for walks to take place between the 10th and 19th of September.
Normally the Midnight Walk raises around £65,000 for the Hospice. Last year they revealed a budgeted funding gap of £435,000 for this current year. The coronavirus pandemic has made the situation far worse with many of the Hospice’s fund raising activities having to be curtailed.
