  • £72 could pay for two hours break from caring, to recharge batteries and catch up with friends and family.
  • £89 can enable an ellenor nurse to provide a session of chemotherapy for a child in the sanctuary of their own home.
  • £150 provides 6 sessions of counselling - enabling families to make the most of the precious time they have.
  • £480 you could pay for 1 day of specialist care for a patient on our Inpatient Ward 

 

Bunny ears can be purchased on the evening. £2.50 per pair. Orange tutu's will also available at £5 each. 

 

Join us for another evening of camaraderie and fun. Although we cannot promise good weather we can promise a fantastic evening for all the family. Whether you are walking in memory of a loved one or looking for a challenge with some friends you will be raising valuable funds for ellenor.

 

Every year hundreds of you join us, with record numbers last year (over 750 walkers) we hope to have even more in 2018 and make this a night to remember. The walk begins from the cyclopark in Gravesend, again with the choice of two routes; either the 8km or 12km route. Both will start with one loop round the cyclopark, before heading out through Gravesend in a circular route, back to the Cyclopark. All Twilight Walk participants will receive a Twilight Walk t-shirt and Finisher's Medal.

 

Our ‘unforgettable’ walk will start with a mass participation warm up; there will be pit stops along the way. You will then receive hot chocolate, a snack and medal to reward you for your efforts on your return. 

 

We would love to see you all - families, work colleagues and friends – on what is a great night supporting the work provided by ellenor.
