Walk For Wards 2023

Take part in this virtual event as we unite with other NHS charities across Sussex for this truly marvellous fundraiser!

We challenge you to walk, jog or run the 7.5k or 15k route to raise funds for Sussex Community NHS Charity. The money raised will support projects that go above and beyond what core NHS funding provides.

We’ve partnered with Heads On (Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s charity), East Sussex NHS Charity and SASH Charity (Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust’s charity) to deliver Walk For Wards, and participants can choose to raise funds for the NHS charity that means the most to them.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for you to raise funds that will support your local NHS, while also having a lovely day out with friends, family or colleagues. If you are a local business, it makes a great teambuilding day and we’re happy to share how you’re supporting us. To be a part of this event for your NHS, register here.


Event details

Date: You can take on this year's challenge any time throughout the summer!

Location: This is now a virtual event. You can take part in your favourite local walking spot, at your place of work or even run up and down your stairs 75 times!

Registration: Adults: £10.00, Child: £7.50, £25: two adults and two children OR one adult and three children

Sponsorship: We ask you to raise as much as you can, and we suggest each participant sets a personal fundraising target of £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.

Please note, unless you are registering for a family or child entry, each participant will need to register independently.

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!

Participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of £50, which could fund additional equipment or diagnostic tools to enhance patient care, contribute to activities that boost patient and staff morale, buy essential items for patients being discharged, or even help to spruce up a waiting area to improve patient experience.
