Why not get all your friends and family together and come along and help celebrate and remember your loved ones on this special night.  Plans are well underway for this year’s event which will begin and end at the beautiful setting of St. Colman’s College, Newry.  Before the walk there will be a short remembrance service to give participants the chance to remember their loved ones.   At midnight walkers will set off on a 6km route around Newry. The route has been designed to be a fun and easy way for everyone to raise vital funds whilst supporting their local hospice.

Denise Doyle, Community Fundraising Officer at Southern Area Hospice Services added, “The Midnight Memory Walk is a very special event in our Calendar which gives people the chance to remember their loved ones, whilst also raising vital funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.  It is always a lovely evening and I would encourage anybody who is thinking about it to sign up and join us for this great event.”

Gary Kelly of Kelly’s, Warrenpoint who are the main sponsors of the event also commented, “We are proud to be the main sponsor for this amazing event which supports the work of our local Hospice.  I don’t think there is any family which hasn’t been touched by Cancer or illness and this event will help raise funds for a vitally important care service for those living within the Southern Health Board Area."

Registration closes at 1pm today but you can still register on the night from 10.30pm.
