Go the Extra Mile with St Catherine’s Hospice Midnight Walk
St Catherine’s Hospice Midnight Walk is back! With brand new walking routes, it’s the ideal chance to make your steps count while raising funds for your local hospice.
Taking place in Horsham on Saturday 9 June, the walk, sponsored by Gatwick Airport, is open to everyone aged 10 and over and offers a choice of seven, 13 or 20 miles. It starts at 8pm or 10pm depending on your chosen distance.
Nearly 1,000 people walked through Horsham in a spectacular sea of orange last year but St Catherine’s is hoping even more of you will pull on your walking shoes in 2018.
The hospice is hoping to raise £125,000 to help them provide care and support to local terminally ill people when it’s needed most. People like Donald, who St Catherine’s Therapies Team arranged a walker for, so he could go into town and buy his wife a surprise bouquet of flowers.
Louise Brown, Events Fundraiser at St Catherine’s said: “Signing up for our Midnight Walk is something to be proud of. Your support is vital in helping us be there for everyone who needs us, so we hope lots of you will join us in June and help make this year’s Midnight Walk a night to remember.”
It doesn’t matter whether you’re walking for the first time, a personal challenge or in memory of someone you love. It just matters that you walk.
Now’s the chance to make your steps count – will you take it?

Get your garden ready for spring
and support St Catherine’s Hospice!
The New Horizons Appeal, in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice, is inviting the local community to one of the prettiest gardening
events in Sussex – their annual Garden and Produce Fair.
Returning to the exclusive grounds of Cuckfield Park, on Thursday 17 May 2018, the prestigious fair is often referred to as West Sussex’s mini Chelsea and is the perfect way to prepare your garden for spring.
Bringing together a range of established traders selling quality products including specialist plants, gardening products and food produce, the event is a favourite in many people’s calendars, with many traders returning year after year.
As well as gardening and food gifts, homemade cakes and lunches will be available, and if you really fancy indulging you can buy advance bubbly breakfast tickets, which also give you a sneak preview of stalls ahead of general public entrance.
Run by St Catherine’s voluntary New Horizons Appeal Committee, last year the Garden and Produce Fair had more than 50 stalls, attracted more than 600 visitors and raised more than £13,000 for the hospice.
Advance tickets for the Garden and Produce Fair’s special bubbly breakfast and stall preview, from 9am to 10.30am are just £15. General public entry will be £5 per person with the fair open from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
