Memory Walk - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my t-shirt?

T-shirts can be collected from the Hospice reception from 9am to 9pm, any day of the week.

Alternatively you can collect a t-shirt from the registration desk on the night.  If you do collect on the night of the walk, please note that it will be first come first served and we are unable to guarantee we'll have your preferred colour and size.

We advise that you wear comfortable clothes and trainers.  We also recommend that you wear layers under your Memory Walk T-shirt as it can get very cold on the promenade.

You also need to wear your walker number on your t-shirt.

Absolutely, we encourage you to be as colourful as you can!  We'll have lots of neon merchandise available to buy on the night too.
