PJs and DJs at Dorothy House Midnight Walk

By Ben Carey on 18 April, 2024

The Dorothy House Midnight Walk will take place in Bath on Saturday 15th June.

The fundraiser event includes numerous stalls, an environmentally friendly face paint bar and a photo booth, fully-marshalled 5K or 10K walks, and a live DJ.

The Midnight Walk is for anyone aged over 12 and starts at the Bath Pavilion. Arrival is from 9pm, with time to enjoy drinks, food, fun and a warm-up with Cheryl Sprinkler from Mojo Moves.

The 10K route has been added for 2024 for those looking to go a little further. The 10K walkers will set off at 10pm, followed by the 5K walkers heading out at 11pm, enjoying the sights of Bath on a summer night.

This year’s theme is all about nightwear. Dorothy House is encouraging people to take part in their pyjamas, onesies or dressing gowns. Alternatively, walkers are encouraged to upcycle some gorgeous nightwear from one of the charity’s shops.

All the walkers will be back at Bath Pavilion around midnight where everyone is welcome to continue the pyjama party until finish at 1.30am.

Every penny raised from the Midnight Walk will help fund the Dorothy House Hospice at Home service.

Dorothy House is asking each walker to aim to raise a minimum of £50, which could fund two hours of overnight care, provided by one of the charity’s compassionate, skilled and experienced Hospice at Home carers.

Kerry Evans is taking part in the Midnight Walk. Dorothy House looked after her step-dad Kevin.

She said, “We will be forever grateful to all the staff at Dorothy House who contributed to looking after Kevin and us as a family. For the amazing and tender care and the time and effort they gave to Kevin to ensure his time at Dorothy House was as wonderful as it could be. The laughs they provided to keep us all smiling and even to the tears they shared with us after he took his last breath. Nothing was ever too much trouble.”
