The Sunset Walk is back, and this sparkling 10k walk promises to bring sunshine to your summer! Whether you walk in memory of someone special or to make new memories with your loved ones, sign up to the Sunset Walk today!

This evening to remember will start at Wyndley Leisure Centre, where you’ll enjoy entertainment, refreshments and our fun warm-up before setting off on your scenic 10k walk around Sutton Coldfield and Erdington. En route, you’ll enjoy entertainment from street performers, magicians, fire breathers, and more!

During the walk, you’ll pass John Taylor Hospice, where you’ll be able to stop off for a moment of reflection and light a candle in memory of your loved ones. Free tasty refreshments will be available here before you make your way to the finish line back at Wyndley, where you can celebrate your amazing achievement with a free glass of fizz and watch the sun set at our sparkling Sunset Reception.

Raising Sponsorship

By signing up, you’ve taken the first step in supporting John Taylor Hospice, part of The Hospice Charity Partnership. But getting sponsored and raising money for the people we support and care for is what really makes a difference. There is no minimum sponsorship target, but we do ask that you raise as much as you can. You’ll be sent a Sunset Walk Fundraising Pack which will give you information on how to do this, top tips for fundraising and details for the Events Team, who will be here to support you every sunset step of the way.
