Dusk Memory Walk at Dorothy House

Dusk Memory Walk at Dorothy House

The Dusk Memory Walk, at Dorothy House Hospice in Winsley, is a 5km sponsored walk for all the family that starts at 7pm and ends at the Hospice as daylight begins to fade.

At the end of the walk, there is the opportunity to put your own message on a candle bag, which will shine in the grounds of the Hospice. The circular walk is open to all, including children and even the dog!

Part of the walk will be through fields and could be muddy so sensible footwear should be worn. There are also hilly sections. We regret that due to the terrain the route is NOT suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. You can view the route map on the website. Parking is available.

Entry for the Dusk Memory Walk is £12 for adults and £5 for children (aged 16 and under).

Dorothy House Hospice Care

Dorothy House Hospice Care is a leading, independent charity and in 2017 was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), placing it in the top 6% of adult social care providers nationally. DHHC provides free, palliative and end of life care from early diagnosis and operates across 700 square miles, serving a population of 550,000 people. We are a key provider of services for Bath and North-East Somerset (BaNES), Wiltshire, and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Groups.

Specialists in complex palliative and end of life care, DHHC aims to pioneer its delivery of best practice care and support, tailored to the needs of patients with life-limiting illness, their families and carers.

The majority of our care is delivered in the home and the community including our Nurse Specialist teams working in partnership with GPs, a growing Hospice at Home Service and support through our Outreach Centres and 1,300-strong volunteer network. DHHC also provides inpatient care, pre-and post-bereavement support, rehabilitation programmes, complementary, creative therapies and more.

Our aim is to equip individuals and communities with the knowledge and skills to respond to life-limiting illnesses with dignity, compassion and - above all - humanity. Education and training are at the forefront of this work: We run programmes and events for health and social care professionals, and increasingly, the wider community around death and dying.

Providing our services requires significant funds and for every £1 from the NHS, we have to raise £4. We do this through our work in fundraising, our 28 shops and education programmes. www.dorothyhouse.org.uk
