Dorothy House Hospice Care is offering local residents a Bank Holiday treat with 25% off ticket prices for their ‘Hospice Care Hero Walk’, taking place on Saturday 7th September.
The discount will be available between 6am on Friday 23rd August and midnight on Monday 26th August.
The Hospice Care Hero Walk, previously known as the Bath Moonlight Walk, will take place between 5pm-10pm on Saturday 7th September in the grounds of the Bath Spa University Campus at Newton Park near Bath. Registration opens at 5pm and the walks start from 6pm.
For four days over the Bank Holiday weekend, Hospice Care Hero Walk tickets are reduced by 25% to £15 for walkers over 12+ years, and to £7.50 for child tickets for 2-11years.
Entry is free for spectators and children under 2 years and dogs on leads are also welcome to participate.
Walkers can dress up as their favourite superhero and enjoy hero-themed fun zones as they walk their chosen 1km, 5km or 10km route in the countryside around the University campus which features a lake, woodlands, meadows, scenic views and castle.
At the start there will be food and drink stalls, a merchandise stall selling superhero masks, capes and glow bands, some mystery guests will mingle with the crowds and a DeLorean sports car will be on show along with a Selfie Wall for photos.
Along the walking routes, there will be a Music Zone by the lake, a snow machine in the Frozone plus a Bubble Zone you can dance through at Newton Farm Foods and a Ye Olde Hero Zone at the castle.
There will also be a Memory Area to reflect and remember loved ones.
All walkers will receive a free gift before the walk and a free ‘superhero’ drink after the walk.
Spectators, supporters, walkers, staff and volunteers are invited to join the hero-themed after-party for a silent disco.
There will also be a raffle to win a luxury Mulberry handbag, delicious street food, a prosecco stall and drinks bar.
Emily Knight, Event Fundraiser at Dorothy House said: “We can’t wait to see everyone in their superhero outfits walking through the stunning grounds of Bath Spa University before relaxing at our after-party.
“By signing up for the Hero Walk you can help us fund vital patient care as the Hospice aims to double its patient numbers by 2025.
“The Hero Walk is a fantastic way to celebrate all the heroes involved with Dorothy House including our patients, families, carers, fundraisers, nurses, staff and volunteers. Join us if you can.”
Steph Millard from Bath is walking in memory of her brother Benj Millard, who was cared for by Dorothy House before he died earlier this year.
Steph said: “I am looking forward to taking part in the Hero Walk along with a huge team of Benj’s family and friends called ‘Team Thanos’ and we will be walking in his memory and raising vital funds for our outstanding local Hospice.
“Dorothy House were incredible in Benj’s last days, they showed him the upmost dignity, respect and care.
“The staff at the Hospice continue to support our family in these challenging times and their work is simply phenomenal.”
