Sunset Walk returns to Sutton Park this summer

We’re delighted to announce that our flagship fundraising event, the Sunset Walk, will be returning to Sutton Park on Saturday 3 July!

The popular event will open at 5pm with entertainment at Wyndley Athletics Track. After getting into the party spirit, participants will head off at 6.30pm on a relaxed 10k route through Sutton Park. After completing the course, walkers will be presented with a medal and invited to enjoy a glass of fizz at the Sunset Party.

“After a year of cancelled events we’re just thrilled to confirm this much-loved community event is back,” said Charlie Pette, Community and Events Fundraising Manager at John Taylor Hospice. “The Sunset Walk is a fun-filled evening to enjoy with family and friends. We’ll have extra measures in place to keep people safe and comfortable, so they can enjoy the group warm up, live walk and party atmosphere with others. 

“Over 400 people took part in the last Sunset Walk and raised an incredible £32,500 for hospice care. So as well as being a fabulous night out, every step walkers take raises money for our charity, helping to ensure local people always have access to vital hospice care and support when they need it most.”

Registration is now open and tickets are available at an early-bird rate of £10 per person. Sign up as a team of six and the sixth team members gets their entry for free. Book tickets at

Pauline Moore has kindly shared her family’s experience of this.

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
