The Shakespeare Hospice's memory walk to have prestigious setting

Stratford Editorial 28th Jul, 2023   0

A MEMORY WALK in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice is set to have a prestigious setting.

The fundraiser is set to take place at Alscot Park in Atherstone-on-Stour on September 17 thanks to estate owner, and hospice supporter, Emma Holman-West, offering to open her normally private gardens for the event.

Participants can celebrate the lives of loved ones and cherish their memories, as they embark on a two-mile walk, which begins at the Grade I listed Rococo gothic style house, that has been in the West family since 1747.

The walk then continues through the gardens and parkland. At the end of the walk, participants will have the opportunity to write a message to a loved one and hang it around a “Memory Tree”.

Registrants can also explore the park’s private garden and enjoy a picnic with friends and family.

Hospice spokesperson Bridget Richards said: “We are incredibly grateful to Emma for her exceptional generosity in allowing us to host our first Memory Walk at Alscot Park.

“This exclusive event provides a rare opportunity for our community to come together, connect with nature, and remember those we have lost while raising vital funds to support our crucial work.”

The Shakespeare Hospice is inviting individuals, families, and corporate teams to participate in the Memory Walk at Alscot Park. The event is open to anyone and loved ones do not have to have been cared for by the hospice to take part.

Funds from the walk will contribute to the hospice’s mission of providing compassionate care and support to those affected by life-limiting illnesses.
