Previous Moonlit walkers said...

"The walk across the field with the tiny candle lights was really beautiful!"

"I loved the moonlit walk this year."

"I walked with family members and we thoroughly enjoyed it."


With your support, we can make a real difference.

Marion tells how the Hospice Community Team supported her in caring for her husband Peter, enabling him to die at home surrounded by his family.

"The Hospice made such a difference. Joerg and the community team helped me more than they will ever know. With their help, Peter was fighting to the end. When he died, he knew I was with him. He had his children around him and his ‘mutleys’ - our two Westies - lying across his legs."
