    Leave a Comment

    The Pilgrims Hospice are an amazing charity, who have been providing end of life care and support for patients and their families across east Kent for more than thirty years. Their vision for hospice care is that everyone in east Kent should have access to services so they can cope with life-limiting illness with dignity and free from pain. A truly amazing charity.

    On Saturday, 30th September, The Pilgrims Hospice ‘A Night to Shine’ walk is taking place. Their brand new sponsored 5k, 8k or 10k walk that brings together people from across the east Kent community for one very special night. Last year, the walkers raised a massive £85,000 for local hospice care…amazing!

    In each town, you’ll enjoy music, a friendly party atmosphere, an energetic warm up and lots more, before setting off simultaneously into the evening at 7pm; amid a sea of lantern light. All your favourite glowing merchandise will be available for purchase.

    Enjoy strolling under the stars along the 5km or 10km walk distances (5km and 8km distance options in Broadstairs with the walk starting with a stroll along the beach to Louisa Bay Gap) (only 5km distance option at Canterbury).

    Whether you are walking for fun, fitness or in memory of a loved one, this is a truly lovely thing to do!

    Supporting and promoting charities is an important part of being a business owner. We have some fantastic charities in the Kent area that rely on the goodwill of people, donations, promotion and volunteers.

    We are very happy to promote The Pilgrims Hospice. They have been providing end of life care and support for patients and their families across east Kent for more than 30 years. Their vision for hospice care is that everyone in east Kent should have access to services so they can cope with life-limiting illness with dignity and free from pain. A truly amazing charity.

    A growing majority of their patients choose to spend their final days in the familiar surroundings of their homes in the company of loved ones and Pilgrims Hospices is fully committed to helping its patients achieve their wishes to do so.

    Last year they cared for 2,300 patients; a figure that is set to climb in the years ahead as people live longer and have more complex conditions. More and more people are being affected by cancer, so their services within the community are vital. My mum works as a carer at the Margate hospice and the work they do there is essential, for everyone affected by cancer.

    Our local pub in Ramsgate held a pub quiz recently and we raised £2,500 for this amazing charity. The Pilgrims Hospice could not continue its vital work without donations and their dedicated band of volunteers.
