Sue Ryder Care Midnight Walks

Posted 28 July 2010 00:00 by martin

We're glad to see that quite a few of you are taking advantage of our new walking events listing page, and popping your events up there for all to see. In particular, we're very happy to see the number of charity fundraising walks and runs that feature. They are a great way to get outdoors, get some exercise, make some new friends and raise money for a worthy cause all at the same time.

Currently, we only really promote events that are occurring in one of our host cities, so that events showing up on the city home-pages are relevant. However, we're aware that a lot of charities often run programmes of events up and down the country, including many in towns and cities that we don't yet cover.

If this is you, then we're more than happy to shout out about your worthy cause here on the blog, and list your whole series of events. And of course, you can still add individual events in our host cities as well. Please get in touch if you want us to blog about you.

This week, we want to give a mention to Sue Ryder Care, who provide compassionate care and social support to people with challenging end of life and long-term conditions. They provide care 24 hours every day in 14 care centres and in people's homes, and each year need to raise £74 million to fund their work.

Sue Ryder Care run a series of women only Midnight Walks over the summer every year, in order to raise money. There are still five left to go this summer:

Dundee – 28.8.10
Aberdeen – 4.9.10
Ilkley – 11.9.10
Manchester – 25.9.10
Leeds – 25.9.10

If one of them is happening near you, why not get involved.
