Walk for Wards 2019
Hospital patients, staff and the local community will walk together to raise money for their local hospitals at our fifth annual Walk for Wards on Sunday 13th October 2019, 10am.
Participants can decide which ward or area of the hospitals will directly benefit from their support, raising funds which will provide extra care and equipment over and above that provided by the NHS.
“It was fantastic to walk in a beautiful setting, and raising funds was a perfect way to say thank you to the ward team who had given incredible care to my family. I even got to pop in to the ward and see the Rise and Recline Chair I funded first-hand!” Gemma
The event will take place at scenic Cirencester Park and walkers can choose a 3km or full 10km challenge. The family friendly shorter route gives supporters of all abilities the chance to join in, and dogs are also welcome. Refreshments will be provided for all walkers.
Walk for Wards has raised over £20,000 for wards across the hospitals, funding equipment which benefits a wide range of patients from people fighting cancer to stroke and heart patients, and new babies through our Maternity Fund.
