Walk in memory of your loved ones whenever or wherever you choose.


Due to the ever developing Coronavirus situation, this year's Lavender Memories Walk will be virtual! Sadly, we will not be able to host the walk and celebration that we had intended but we are not going to let that stop you.

You can still enter to take part below, we just ask that you complete your 6mile walk wherever you choose. However, please ensure that you listen to government advice and follow social distancing guidance.

When: Between 1st May and 13th June

Where: You choose! But be sure to follow government advice regarding social distancing. 

How: Send us proof that you have completed your walk using apps such as Strava, Garmin or FitBit. Or if you don't have any facility to do this, just send us a photo of you in your t-shirt with a big smile telling us what you have done. Please email evidence to [email protected] by 5pm on the 13th June. 

Distance: 6miles (12,000 steps) - either on local roads or in your property and/or garden. You can also choose one of our alternatives below.

We want to make sure that as many of you as possible can take part and remember your loved ones in this way. It's so important right now to give yourself a focus to get up and get active! So if you don't feel that you can complete 6miles all at once or you would prefer not to leave your house, we have some alternative suggestions for you:

  • Complete 1 mile per day for 6 days.
  • Use your property or garden to step up for St Raph's. For every 1mile the average person walks 2,000 steps, so to complete 6miles you will need to walk 12,000 steps. It's up to you if you try to do this in 1 day or over a number of days. 
  • Use your flight of stairs. 1 flight is on average 12 steps. 6miles is 1,000 flights of stairs (in either up or down direction). 143 flights of stairs per day if doing it over 1 week. 

Entry fee: Adults £15. Child £10 (5-15yrs). Family £45 (2 adults and 2 children). Includes Lavender Walk t-shirt, information pack and medal - all sent to you in the post. 

Sponsorship: There is no minimum sponsorship. However, in these difficult and uncertain times, with almost all of our usual fundraising activity cancelled, we need your help more than ever. We encourage all walkers to raise additional sponsorship to support our nurses and clinical staff working exceptionally hard on the front line to continue our vital care.
