Walk For Wards

***Event postponed***

Unfortunately the difficult decision has been taken to postpone Walk for Wards 2021 at Glynde Place on Sunday 5 September.

As a group of NHS charities, the safety of our local communities is our first priority and given the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation in Sussex we don’t think now is the right time to go ahead with the event.

We will be rescheduling for Spring 2022 and will announce a revised date shortly.

 

 

We are thrilled to see the launch of Walk for Wards on Sunday 5 September!

Tucked away in the heart of the South Downs, Glynde Estates is a rural estate and offers a beautiful backdrop for all the walkers and runners for an event that is proving to be a very remarkable day. 

After a year like none other, NHS Charities in Sussex are uniting to launch the event; asking participants to select the NHS Charity that means the most to them. The charities are challenging participants to take on either the 5km or 10km route all whilst raising vital funds.

We are asking YOU to walk, run or jog for Sussex Community NHS Charity and raise funds to provide extra support to enhance patient care at Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust.

Event details

Date: Sunday 5 September 2021

Location: Glynde Estates, Glynde (nr Lewes)

Registration: £10 for an adult, £5 for a child and £25 for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children)

Sponsorship: We ask our participants to raise as much as they can and set a personal fundraising target of at least £50.

We understand that some people would like to take part without fundraising, we therefore ask you to make a suggested donation of at least £20 (excluding entry fee) instead. Donations and fundraising pages can be made through our JustGiving campaign

Why walk for Sussex Community NHS Charity?

By walking for our charity, you will be helping us to continue providing grants to Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust to:

  • Improve the physical and mental health of patients, staff and volunteers
  • Support staff development to help them provide excellent care
  • Improve the equipment and facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of our patients.
  • Create patient and family friendly care environments
  • Advance our understanding through medical research

Join our team today and support your local NHS!

£50 could help fund additional equipment or diagnostic tools to enhance patient care, a team building day to boost staff morale, essential goodies for patient discharge gift baskets or even spruce up a waiting area to improve patient experience.
