East Coast Hospice have taken the difficult decision to postpone our planned 'Light Up The Night', Neon Walk on Friday 27th March. With the evolving situation and following Government issued guidelines around Coronavirus (Covid-19) the vast majority of organisations in the UK and globally are minimising public to public events and external meetings to help limit the spread of infections.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but it is paramount that our primary focus is to consider the safety of all of our participants, volunteers and staff in light of the current situation.
We need your support now more than ever
As a charity we rely heavily on the generosity of the public, When events such as our 'Light Up The Night, Neon Memory Walk' along with many other planned for 2020/21 that may have to be cancelled later on this year due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), it will have a huge impact on our income and ability to progress with the hospice project and commencement of build.
Any donation or fundraising is vital in helping us to maintain momentum towards the hospice goal, a sadly missing facility that so many in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area need. That’s why we need your support now more than ever. Please consider making a donation today. Thank you to you all.














On Friday 27th March, we will be Lighting Up the Night at our neon-themed sponsored walk. What a way to start your WEEKEND!

Get your glow sticks at the ready, dress up like you are fresh out of the 80's with every shade of Neon Glow you can find, as we prepare to Illuminate the Night with Neon in support of the East Coast Hospice appeal and walk together and remember our loved ones missed, who will shine forever bright in our hearts.

Starting on the Great Yarmouth Sea Front outside the Wellington Pier, the walk will follow a pedestrianised, mostly, flat route of approx. 4K (2.6 miles) returning to the Pier. Children are welcome to join you in the neon fun, either in push chairs or walking – but it could be a late night for them. Dogs too are welcome – but they must be on a lead. You can walk, stroll or dance, JUST HAVE LOTS OF FUN as we make our way around the route together as a group.

Your entry fee covers the costs of East Coast Hospice hosting and organising the event. The charity relies on funds raised at events like this to support the appeal. Therefore, we kindly ask and encourage all entrants to raise a minimum of £10 in sponsorship in aid of the appeal. If every entrant raised this amount or more, that is potentially in excess of £2,000 towards the appeal, which would be fantastic.
