Help us make a difference


Walk for Life is a fundraising event, and we rely on all our participants raising as much money as possible to help Farleigh Hospice continue to care for people in mid Essex living with a life-limiting illness or bereavement. 

Every year Walk for Life raises on average £40,000 for the charity, funding the work our doctors, nurses, and carers who have been working on the frontline. We have looked after over 500 patients since the beginning of lockdown and we have also been instrumental in supporting the NHS through the Covid-19 pandemic. As the need for hospice services has been increasing, our income from fundraising has dramatically declined. The pandemic has left Farleigh facing one of its biggest financial challenges since it opened its doors nearly 40 years ago.

Don’t forget to share your Walk for Life journey with us on social media using #TeamFarleigh #WalkForLife2020

Stay safe: social distance


We ask all our participants to remain safe and follow government guidelines in relation to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

In England, the current law states you must not meet in groups of more than six. This applies to both indoors and outdoor spaces, and to all ages. We ask everyone who is taking part to keep up to date on the latest guidelines, follow all social distancing measurers, and any local restrictions, as instructed by the government.

We are asking people to plan their virtual Walk for life from 5th - Sunday 11th October 2020 during hospice care week

Do I need to raise sponsorship?

It would be wonderful if you would ask friends and family, or your employer and colleagues to sponsor you to complete a specific walk or challenge for the event.
