Men’s Walk 2022

A walk, a pint and a pasty can only mean one thing: Hospiscare’s Men’s Walk is back again for 2022! Sign up to be part of something special for your community in our charity’s 40th anniversary year and raise vital funds for your local hospice.

The date for your diary is Saturday 12 March. Choose from two brilliant ways to join our popular annual event and raise vital funds for Hospiscare. We’ve never needed your support more to care for local families who rely on us at the toughest of times.  

Join us either at Exeter’s Double Locks for an 8-mile route or take part independently by walking a route of your choice local to you.

Want to supersize your Men’s Walk this year?

Are you thinking eight miles isn’t quite enough of a challenge? Please feel free to ‘supersize’ your Men’s Walk and walk any distance that challenges you. This could mean walking a longer distance over a number of days, as long as your final eight miles are either with us at Double Locks or at your chosen location for Men’s Walk: Your Route on Saturday 12 March. It’s Men’s Walk but Supersized!

Choose your path...

In 2022 there are two ways to join us for the event. However you choose to take part, you will be supporting local people and their families living with a terminal illness.

Whichever way you join us, everything we love about Men’s Walk remains the same. You’ll get your own Men’s Walk t-shirt, a pint courtesy of Exeter Brewery, a pasty supplied by Chunk of Devon, the rugby, a great day out and the chance to support Hospiscare! The only thing missing is you; whether you walk your own route or join us at the Double Locks, we will be walking together to support local people and their families living with a terminal illness.

However you choose to take part, the sponsorship money you raise will make a huge difference in your local community. We can still come together, in person or in your own way, to support our patients and their families at a time when they need it most.

We know the past 18 months have been difficult for everyone in one way or another and the COVID-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on our ability to fund our care. The hospice’s income is not recovering quickly enough to keep pace with costs and we are facing a large deficit. Unless we can raise £1 million in time for Men’s Walk 2022, we face having to make drastic cuts to our services. So please, sign up to Men’s Walk today, start your fundraising and help Hospiscare Save Our Services

*Please note: Should the Men’s Walk: Double Locks event option not be able to go ahead, for example if COVID-19 restrictions are reintroduced, all Men’s Walk: Double Locks participants will automatically be switched to the Men’s Walk: Your Route event option or offered a full refund. A final decision regarding the Men’s Walk Double Locks event going ahead will be made at least two weeks prior to the event.

We’ve never needed your support more

Make a real difference

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all and we have had to adapt our fundraising to ensure that our vital care service can continue at no cost to our patients. Hospiscare is facing a loss of income of over £1 million this financial year and we need our community to come together to support end-of-life-care in the heart of Devon.
