On Saturday 20th June 2020, Bolton Hospice will be having their annual Memories Walk... virtually!
This year, instead of a set route or number of miles, you can walk in memory of your loved ones, wherever and whenever you’d like! Participants are given the challenge of 10,000 steps each with the goal of reaching a milestone 1 million steps on 20th June! You can use your phone or an app to track your steps & upload your final count to their facebook event page here.
There are so many reasons to walk... in memory, to support or just for fun - and thier Virtual Memories Walk means more people can take part than ever before as you can complete your 10,000 steps at any time on 20th June, and in as much or as little time as you need.
To mark the special significance of your walk, you can light a candle for your loved one when you get home and share these photos on their wall of memories too.
For more information on the event, visit Bolton Hospice's website here.
Poppys Virtual Memory Walk
One of our Miller Metcalfe family members, Poppy Lucas, is taking part in the Virtual Walk.
Poppy is the daughter of our Associate Director, Mark Lucas, aged 7 years old and has chosen to walk in memory of her Grandpa Alan and her Auntie Georgie who are sadly no longer with us and who she dearly misses. Those who already know her will be aware of her love of the outdoors and that she enjoys nothing more than walking in the woods and having adventures along the way. When Bolton Hospice announced the Virtual Memory Walk, Poppy asked if she would be able to join in and help raise money to support such a wonderful cause. Poppy’s Mummy works at the Hospice as a Clinical Support Nurse so she knows what a fantastic job the whole team do.
If you would like to donate and support Poppy, all donations large or small would be really appreciated
To donate, you can visit Poppys Just Giving page here.
