Big Fun Walk is North London Hospice’s flagship event.
Our iconic walk has become one of our most loved and talked about events, raising well over £1 million for the vital care we provide. Thank you for all the support you continue to show our hospice by taking part in Big Fun Walk.
The 8.5 mile walk takes you through London’s most famous landmarks, including breath-taking views of the city at the top of Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill. You will celebrate in style in the heart of Westminster where your medals, music, a luxury raffle, and a well-earned brew await you at our new venue Central Hall, Westminster.
North London Hospice provides care when and where it is needed most, free of charge to our patients and their loved ones. This doesn’t mean that it’s cost free though. Less than 40% of our costs are covered by the NHS and we still need to find millions of pounds each year to ensure our doors are open for those who need us 365 days a year. Each year our costs increase and this year, with rising inflation, we are particularly feeling the pinch like so many others in our community.
Taking part in the Big Fun Walk and raising money, helps us to ensure that nobody in our North London community ever needs to face terminal illness alone. Your participation and sponsorship directly ensures we can help everybody who needs it, so that they can be cared for and supported with dignity, empathy, and compassion. Our vision is to provide the best of life, at the end of life, for everyone – and your support helps to make this happen.
Please join us at our Big Fun Walk 2023 event and show your support for North London Hospice.
