Virtually Twilight 2020

Join us on 4 July to raise vital funds for Hospiscare!

We are super excited to bring you ‘Virtually Twilight’ this July! In April we took the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Twilight Walk due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  After careful consideration, we decided to create an event that captures the essence of Twilight Walk, whilst being safe for all participants.

Please join us to walk a distance and route of your choice (while social distancing of course!) on Saturday 4 July to raise money for Hospiscare.

Join us online at 6pm for a virtual welcome and warm up before you start your walk. We encourage you to wear pink or a previous Twilight t-shirt as well as your Memory Star on your back and complete a walk that is a safe challenge for you. We know many of you will be used to taking part in large groups and therefore we suggest Skyping and Facetiming your friends and family as you walk or when you return home. Be sure to take some selfies, too – we’d love to see them!

When you return from your walk, join us online for a Moment of Reflection as we light candles in memory of loved ones. This will be followed by an upbeat music performance so you can celebrate your walk and fundraising success with a glass of fizz (or whatever you have in the fridge!) in the comfort of your own home.

If you’d rather not walk or are unable to join us on the 4th July you can still take part by signing up and leaving your dedication for the Moment of Reflection so we can light a candle in memory of your loved one. You could also walk in the week building up to the event and, if you’re unable to watch the broadcast live – no worries we’ve got that covered too! The broadcast will be available to view on demand after the event on the Twilight Walk Facebook page.

To be part of something amazing and something bigger in this time of isolation, sign up below for just £5. Once registered, you’ll receive an email containing:

  • Your own printable memory star
  • A make-your-own memory star tutorial for those feeling crafty, or without access to a printer
  • More information about the event and fundraising hints and tips
  • A link to create your very own Virtually Twilight Just Giving page, so you can help raise vital funds for Hospiscare. It’s quick, easy and great for sharing with friends and family!
