Then rock up to your chosen start point in your best 80s attire - from 7pm on 11th May 2024 - to get involved with the fun!

  • FAQS

Why walk for North Devon Hospice?

The majority of people North Devon Hospice cares for are women. They may be facing a terminal diagnosis, or they may be caring for their partner or parent who is affected by a life-limiting illness, often while juggling work and other commitments themselves. By fundraising and participating in Nightwalk, you can help to support these women, every step of the way.

How do I set up a fundraising page?

Simply click here to set up your Nightwalk Just Giving page. Send the link to your friends, family and colleagues using Facebook, WhatsApp, or email. You'll be amazed at how quickly you reach £50 or £100! Once you set up your Just Giving page, we'll keep in touch with tips and support on how to raise as much as possible for local families.

If you'd prefer to have a paper sponsor form, you can download one here.

Who is the event open to?

Nightwalk is open to women and girls, aged 11+. All girls under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult woman who walks with them at the event. Please note, a maximum of three under-18s are permitted to walk with each adult. 

Are men allowed to volunteer?

Although Nightwalk is restricted to women participants, we encourage men to get involved by volunteering

Is the Nightwalk route accessible?

We have tried our best to make Nightwalk accessible for all. If you have limited mobility or any questions about the route, please get in touch with our fundraising team by emailing
