Step into the moonlight to remember your loved ones
The event is an annual evening sponsored walk where walkers can take the opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones while raising vital funds for the charity.
A bereaved family from St Ives will be taking part in the event in Falmouth in memory of Lia who sadly died from a brain tumour aged 11 in 2013.
Lia and her family had, and continue to receive, support from CHSW through its Little Harbour hospice in St Austell. After Lia's diagnosis the family had respite stays at the hospice and created many happy memories there including those of a onesie party thrown for Lia and some of her closest friends.
Since Lia's death her family have supported CHSW any way they can; taking part in many events to raise funds in various different ways. Earlier this summer Stuart completed a 215 mile sponsored cycle ride; Ride for Precious Lives, riding from Bristol to St Austell over three days in memory of his daughter.
On 2 October the Moonlight Memory Walk will be happening in Falmouth or people can get involved virtually by doing their own walk of any distance and any route and then watch the live stream of the memory ceremony.
This event is open to anyone, you don't have to have a link to our hospices, so whether you choose to join us in Falmouth or take part at home please do get involved."
Kurtis Reece, PR & Strategic Partnerships Executive for National Friendly added "We are the proud sponsors of this event for a second consecutive year and our organisation is passionate about helping families prepare for life's contingencies. The Moonlight Memory Walk is a wonderful opportunity for friends and family members to join together with CHSW in person or virtually to remember their loved ones.
Enhanced measures have been put in place to ensure the Falmouth event is covid-safe for walkers, staff and volunteers.
