Little Hospice Heroes


The idea of Little Hospice Heroes is to encourage community spirit and promote healthy living and exercise for children, while raising funds for Pendleside Hospice in the process.

It is set to be an amazing event with a procession of around 300 children walking on the day.

The event is for children age 14 years old or under and they must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event (accompanying adults take part free of charge).

Our fully marshalled 3 mile route will start at 11am with registration opening at 9.30am in our Hospice marquee near the playground.

The walk takes between 1 - 2 hours to complete depending on how old the child is and how fast their pace. Before the walk each registered child will receive a goody bag which they will fill with lots of exciting things along the way and upon completion of the walk, they will be rewarded with a well earned medal. They will also receive a certificate in the post after the walk when their sponsor money has been handed into the hospice.

The route is pram and wheel chair friendly, however please be aware that some area are quite steep.

Near the marquee area before and after the walk, there will be food concessions, face painting, children’s entertainment and more.

We are encouraging groups such as nurseries, schools, holiday and after school clubs, Rainbows, Brownies, Beavers and Cubs etc to get in touch, as we would like to come and take a promotional photograph of your team prior to the event to post the picture on our Facebook page and to send to the local press to let the community know of your support.
