Dorothy House announces 2017 Bath Moonlight Walk

The charity, Dorothy House Hospice Care, has confirmed that its 2017 Bath Moonlight Walk will be held on Saturday 9 September, with support from top athletes, Paralympic Swimming Champion, Stephanie Millward and Jo Muir, Modern Pentathlete. The women-only 8km Moonlight Walk, now in its eleventh year, is a fundraising event for local women (individuals and business teams) and starts from the SouthGate Shopping Centre in Bath at 10pm.

The Bath Moonlight Walk is Dorothy House’s biggest annual fundraiser and last year attracted almost 800 entrants who raised over £95,000 towards caring for people with life-limiting illnesses.

According to Dorothy House, this year’s theme for the Moonlight Walk is ‘Saturday Night Diva’ and aims to bring women together to celebrate life and support the ‘sisterhood’ of people who are affected by, or instrumental in, the provision of end of life care in our community. Friends, mothers, daughters, aunts, grandmas and sisters will be hitting the streets for the Bath Moonlight Walk dressed in their best glittery disco gear to celebrate the work of Dorothy House.

The Walk is open all women, aged 14 and over and takes in the main sights of Bath. If any men wish to participate, Dorothy House also has marshalling roles available.

Emily Knight, events fundraiser for Dorothy House Hospice Care, said: “The enthusiasm of the walkers to support their local hospice is always amazing and it’s often a special time to remember a loved one while having a fun girls’ night out with friends, family or colleagues while also doing something meaningful. Last year’s Bath Moonlight Walk raised £95,000 so it would be fantastic to beat that figure this year.”
