Two events coming up......................

St Davids Hospice are appealing for supporters to join in with their STEPtember campaign which starts next month. The charity fundraiser will be challenging people to walk 10,000 steps each day throughout the month of September.
Challenge fundraiser Shannon Kelly-Jones said, ?St David?s Hospice nurses walk around 10,000 steps each day while on shift. We wanted to create a fundraiser encouraging people to walk their own 10,000 steps each day as a tribute to our hard-working medical team across our three sites and through Hospice at Home."

The Hospice has created a registration pack that will act as a helpful guide to those able to take part in the challenge.

Registration is just 5 pounds and we are here to help with STEPtember ideas for our supporters. Each sign up will receive a pack that contains a calendar to keep track as well as lots of step generating ideas. We have also set up a STEPtember Facebook group where people can post their progress pictures, videos and stories?, explained Shannon.

St David?s Hospice relies on fundraising to help keep the service running for patients and their families across North West Wales. The charity has inpatient wards in Llandudno and Holyhead, a day therapy centre in Llandudno and Bangor as well as offering a Hospice at Home service, allowing patients the choice for end of life care in their own home.

To sign up to the Hospice?s STEPtember challenge visit:

THE Ferris wheel on Llandudno Pier will be lit up in purple one evening next month to coincide with a fundraising event in aid of a hospice.
St David?s Hospice, which provides palliative care across North West Wales, is hosting its much-loved ?Moonlight Memories? walk on Saturday, September 16.

Starting at Venue Cymru, the 5km walk costs ?20 for adults, ?15 for children, ?5 for dogs, or ?55 for a family ticket (two adults and children each).

Registration opens at 7.30pm and the walk will start at 8.30pm.

You can sign up for the walk at:

The walk will take participants along the North Shore promenade heading to the Pier.

It will then go through the town, to the hospice, for a halfway stop before later heading back to Venue Cymru.

All entrants will receive a memory lantern, a special souvenir and a hot drink and cake at the halfway point, with a dog goody bag also included in your admission.
