Whether you’re a seasoned walker or fancy an evening stroll with family and friends in beautiful surroundings, Walk Ten at Hampton Court on 30th August is the perfect excuse to put on your walking shoes, pack a picnic and join the experience.
Hampton Court is one of 19 stunning locations across the UK chosen for Walk Ten this year. Join us as we discover the magnificence of Henry VIII's favourite royal residence. Enjoy exclusive after-dark access to this famous palace and grounds as you take an evening 10k riverside walk.
After completing the walk, settle down with your picnic and enjoy the festival-like celebrations with live music, entertainment and spectacular fireworks at 10pm. These fireworks coincide with the time many Marie Curie Nurses start their night shift, providing care to people with terminal illnesses and their families in their own homes.
Vivienne Ivins, whose mother was cared for by Marie Curie Nurses said: "I wanted to feel I could give something back. The Walk Ten sounded like the kind of event that we could all join in - young, old, male, female. We are planning a large family group, attending with a celebratory picnic. Mum would have loved it - she loved countryside, walking, woodland, and country flowers. She also liked parties!”
Registration is £10 per person (children under-16 go free; on the night adult registration is £20) and everyone is asked to raise as much as possible in support of Marie Curie. All the funds raised will help Marie Curie provide more care, free of charge, to terminally ill people in their own homes. Register now for your Walk Ten at www.mariecurie.org.uk/walkten or for more information call 0845 052 4184.
