Sussex NHS Charities unite for Walk for Wards fundraising event

6 April 2022

NHS Charities in Sussex are uniting to launch Walk for Walks 2022, challenging participants to take on a 5km or 10km route to raise vital funds for the NHS Charity that means the most to them. This special event takes place on Saturday 11 June at beautiful Glynde Place in Lewes and will see supporters travelling from across Sussex to take part.

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s charity, Heads On, is coordinating the event for the participating NHS Charities. Rachael Duke, Head of Charity at Heads On, said:

The last two years have been like no other. Patients and staff have all felt the pressures in the way our services are delivered as well as to our personal lives.

NHS Charities enable the health service Trusts they support to go above and beyond what would otherwise be possible. We are thrilled to be coming together with the other NHS Charities to deliver such a special event and we look forward to welcoming participants to celebrate and support their NHS services in Sussex.

Tucked away in the heart of the South Downs, Glynde Place offers a beautiful backdrop for all the walkers and runners for this remarkable day.

Participating NHS charities are Heads On (Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s charity), East Sussex NHS charity, Sussex Community NHS Charity and SASH Charity (Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust’s charity). All participants can choose to fundraise for all participating charities or one specifically.

Registration is £10 for an adult, £5 for a child and £25 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. This fee includes entry to the event at Glynde Place and a t-shirt and medal when you cross the finish line, commemorating this one-of-a-kind event. To register online and select the NHS Charity you would like to fundraise for please visit the events page on the Heads On charity website. Registration closes on Friday 27 May 2022.
