Candles on the Canal is a memorial event, we hope you will be able to join us to celebrate the life of someone special to you. Some people may wish to raise money to support the ongoing work of Hospsicare, to help with this we will send a sponsorship form with your walker pack. For those who wish to make a donation we have added this option to the registration form below, we are grateful for any support you are able to give. £30 would provide an hour of bereavement support or a complimentary therapy for a patient or family member.
