Memory Miles - East Cheshire Hospice

Memory Miles

With Our Community We Can Go The Distance

In summer 2020 we launched Memory Miles – a virtual community fundraising event where our supporters logged miles and raised funds during a time when most of our usual fundraising activities were cancelled or postponed.

This Summer we are asking you, our community, to once again help us go the distance!

Whether you walk, run, cycle, skate or swim, we’re asking you to support the Hospice by collecting miles in memory of those you have lost.

Anyone can take part in this community memory event between May and August 2021, and whatever you can do will contribute to the end goal. Whether you walk 1 mile or swim 100 miles, whether you raise £10 or hundreds of £’s we are all in this together and your efforts will directly help people in your community who need it most.

Why now?

While it’s looking like some fundraising events might be back in summer 2021, for the first half of this year things are still very limited and we’re still unable to fundraise as normal after an extremely challenging 2020. Therefore, virtual fundraising events are still crucial to raise the funds needed to keep our doors open and our services available now, and in the future.

It was also National Walking Month in May! This, in addition to the warmer weather and fact that more people are now able to meet up outdoors mean it’s the perfect time to get out, get moving and start collecting those memory miles!


How does it work?
  1. Set up your personal fundraising page on our exclusive Memory Miles website with Just Giving!
  2. Pick your method and your target distance and/or fundraising target.
  3. Share your fundraising page with friends & family to gain sponsorship!
  4. Complete your Memory Miles & log them on your fundraising page.

Together with all the supporters taking part, your miles will be added to our distance totaliser. Let’s see far far we can get!

You can dedicate your fundraising and your Memory Miles to someone who meant the world to you.

Why should you take part?

As you may know, East Cheshire Hospice is the 2nd lowest funded Hospice, so fundraising is essential to keeping the Hospice services going. Sadly, the impact of COVID-19 over the last year meant that fundraising has been much more difficult. Luckily our community is the greatest there is and showed us generosity that we could not have predicted. Although more fundraising events and activities may be possible again soon, we are still not there yet and we need continued support to help us go the distance.


Let’s get going!

You can help by taking part, raising sponsorship for your Memory Miles and spreading the word – getting everyone you know involved. Share your stories, let us know why you wanted to take part and who you are thinking about while you cover those Memory Miles.
