Moonlight Ribbon Walk

Butterwick Hospice invites you to our 2019 Moonlight Ribbon Walk for a second year in a row.
On Saturday 14th September from 7.30pm we will walk and watch as the Blood Moon rises!
After a huge success at Raby Castle last year we are returning for a second year. We are asking everyone to come together to celebrate the life of their loved ones. We are asking all ages and abilities to join us as we trek the fantastic 5k route around the back of Raby Castle.
The walk will begin at 7.30pm, we will walk 5km around the stunning Raby Castle, around the lake and up through the hills. There will be markers around the whole route, a front walker and a back walker. The walk will end as the sun sets and we will return to the beautiful Walled Gardens of Raby Castle
Adult tickets are £13.50, children under 16 are £8.50 and under 2’s come along for free. We have a ‘family ticket’, which includes two adults and two children’s entry’s, this ticket will be £40, with a saving of £4. You will receive a medal and a little surprise on the night for your ticket price.
We are asking any participants to just try their best with fundraising and sponsorship, you will receive a pack with a sponsor form when you register, there are also online platforms, Virgin Money Giving and Just Giving, which you will also receive information about in your entry pack.
We are asking our walkers to get dressed up on the night! Dress bright and fun as we celebrate the lives of the ones we love!
You will receive a ribbon in your pack, please write the name of your loved one on this ribbon and wear it as you walk!
We cannot wait to see you all there on the night.
