There is just one week to go before one of Galway Hospice’s most important fundraising campaigns, the Galway Memorial Walk.

The walk will begin at Claddagh Hall at 12 noon on Sunday 11 September and all participants must register through galwayhospice.ie/walk or by calling fundraising on 091 770868. 

The Galway Memorial Walk, now in its 17th year, is one of Galway Hospice’s main fundraising campaigns and a very beneficial part of its annual calendar.

Those who participate in the Galway Memorial Walk play a very important part in ensuring the free delivery of essential Inpatient Care, Community Palliative Care, Day Care and Bereavement Support services to those affected by life-limiting illnesses, for as long as they are needed.

Charlene Hurley, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Galway Hospice, said: “It is because of each individual’s participation in the Galway Memorial Walk, that we can continue to provide the care necessary for our patients and their families living with a life-limiting illness.”

Those who take part in the Memorial Walk do so in memory of a family member, friend, neighbour or work colleague who has passed away, with many wearing the name of their loved one on special personalised t-shirts provided by the Hospice.

It is an event that is dear to many people’s hearts and one that will be especially appreciated this year, as we meet once again for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.
