The deadline for early bird prices to join Peterborough’s Walk to Remember is this Sunday night (September 12).
The event in October, organised by Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, is a great way to get out in the fresh air, grab some exercise and remember loved ones.
City business Perkins Engines Company Limited is sponsoring Walk to Remember which will take place at Ferry Meadows on Sunday October 24.
If you fancy joining in there are two options to stretch your legs - 5 or 10km to celebrate the memories of loved ones, while raising money to help Sue Ryder’s nurses and healthcare teams fill someone’s last days with love.
The hospice provides compassionate palliative care for people from across Peterborough and the surrounding region, and also supports their families. Its services include a specialist inpatient unit, hospice at home team and bereavement support.
Nilesh Patel, Senior Community Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, said: “We are really delighted to announce that Perkins – a company which has been part of Peterborough’s history for nearly 90 years – is sponsoring our Walk to Remember Peterborough.
"Their support will allow local people to get together with family and friends to remember someone special. Plus, the funds raised through Walk to Remember will help to make sure the care we give can continue, and that we can keep filling families’ final days together with love.
“A huge thank you to everyone at Perkins, from all of us here at Sue Ryder – your support is very important to us. It is fantastic to collaborate not only through our charity of the year partnership, but also now through Walk to Remember. Together, we can be there when it matters for those who need us in Peterborough and the local area.”
