Update 3 April 2020:

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to postpone Night To Remember, planned for Saturday 27 June. The wellbeing of our patients, families, supporters, staff and volunteers is always at the forefront of every decision we make.  In light of the social distancing measures put in place around the coronavirus, we feel that we cannot now go ahead with the event as planned.

We have been working hard to get a new date set for later this year and to deliver our events in line with any restrictions that may come into place.  We are really pleased to let you know that we have secured a new date for you to complete Night to Remember on Saturday 12 September 2020 and we really hope that you will be able to join us on this date to take on your challenge.

Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding. Keep safe and well and we look forward to speaking to you soon.  In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on events@stbh.org.uk 

 

Put the date in your diary,  Saturday 12 September 2020, see you there!

 

What it’s all about!

Now in its 13th year, Night to Remember is a midnight walk along Worthing’s streets and seafront on Saturday 12 September 2020.

Night to Remember is a chance to remember your loved ones, take on a personal challenge or motivate yourself to get fit – only a few reasons to take part! You can choose to walk 7, 13.1, or 20 mile route which will take you past Worthing to Lancing and Shoreham!

Over the past 12 years, over 11,900 of you have walked the streets and seafront of Worthing and have raised £1,700,000 for St Barnabas House – an incredible amount!

Night to Remember 2020 is open to everyone aged 10 and over and is a wonderful opportunity to invite all your friends, families and colleagues to join together and walk through the night with hundreds of others!

Hospice at Home

All the money you raise from Night to Remember goes directly towards our Hospice at Home service which provides care to patients and supports families in their own homes, throughout the night which is often the most difficult time.

By joining together to walk through the night, we can face the night united and show our support to hundreds of local people and families.

Sponsorship

Your entry fee only just covers the cost of putting on the event. To help us reach everyone who needs hospice care we ask everyone taking part to raise as much sponsor money as you are able. The Events Team is here to support you throughout your fundraising. Why not get in touch and see how we can help?

Volunteers

Where would we be without our volunteers? Night to Remember needs 250 volunteers to make the night possible – without them the event simply would not go ahead.

Our dedicated team of volunteers provide endless encouragement and keep you safe by marshalling the routes, collecting you in support vehicles and registering your arrival. They get you ready for your night by manning the tombola, photo booth, glow products and sweets!  They keep you fed and watered while out on the route and of course the bacon butties to welcome you back! They help you remember your loved ones by volunteering at our dedication areas and being there as someone to talk too.

No amount of time is too much or too little, even an hour can make a huge difference. Do you know a hero for Night to Remember 2020?
