Everyone is walking to support our local hospices!

Sunday 3 April 2022, from 9.30 am, at Whitwell, Rutland Water!


Most people in Rutland know at least someone who has been touched and is thankful for the wonderful care our local hospices provide to allow people to die with the dignity and support they need.  


The sponsored walk is part of an ongoing collaboration between Dying Matters in Rutland, LOROS, Sue Ryder and Dove Cottage, to help ensure people in Rutland, Leicester, Leicestershire and the surrounding community can have the best end of life possible. Hospices rely on the community for much of their funding and that is why we would like invite everyone to participate.


So, please come and enjoy the beauty of Rutland Water, good company, healthy exercise and get your friends to either join in or sponsor you!  This is a great cause, and we need to raise as much funding as possible.”  


The sponsored walk will take place on the 3rd of April and will start from The Harbour Car Park area at Whitwell, Rutland Water from 9.30am


Walkers will be able take part at their preferred pace, with a choice of 3 routes, ranging from 5, 25 and 38 kilometers for the athletes amongst us.  All ages are very welcome and even dogs can join too, as long as they are on a lead.  


For anyone who would like to make a day of it, you can stop off for lunch at the Horse and Jockey at Manton (cost not included in ticket pice).  

Its a great opportunity to give something back for the amazing end of life care our local hospice continue provide to so many people in Rutland.
