Midnight Memory Walk for Rotherham Hospice

Midnight Memory Walk for Rotherham Hospice is back!

Join us on Saturday 24th June 2023 for the Rotherham Hospice Midnight Memory Walk. Who will you walk for?

Rotherham Hospice Ambassador and RUFC honorary president John Breckin is on a mission to bring our whole community together to remember their loved ones and support a service close to so many people’s hearts – Rotherham Hospice. As John says:

The Hospice was there for my family when we needed them. Now’s our chance to come together, remember our loved ones, and be there for the Hospice!

With your help, the Midnight Memory Walk will be our biggest event ever. By walking 10K or 15K through Rotherham in the middle of the night, you’ll be supporting people affected by end-of-life illnesses across Rotherham. 

Online sign up for the Midnight Memory Walk 2023 has now CLOSED.

  • You can sign up on the night at New York Stadium for £10.
  • Please arrive between 10pm and 11.15pm for registration.


Saturday 24th June at midnight (finishing Sunday 25th June).


Starting and finishing outside Rotherham United FC’s Aesseal New York Stadium, the 10K or 15K route goes around Rotherham, passing the Hospice on the way.

Getting sponsored is a wonderful way for your friends & family to show support, both for you and in memory of your loved one. And Rotherham Hospice is here to help.

You can quickly and easily set up an online Just Giving page here. Unsure how? We’ll send you a step by step guide once you’ve signed up.

We’ll also send you a printable sponsorship form, posters and more to help you smash your fundraising goal!

Midnight Memory Messages

A Midnight Memory Message is a sweet way to remember your loved one. 

For a donation of your choice, Rotherham Hospice will send you a Midnight Memory Message tag for you to fill in.

This will then be part of our Midnight Memory Celebration Display, which will be viewable outside the Hospice on Broom Road during the Midnight Memory Walk.

You could volunteer to:

  • be a midnight marshall to ensure walkers stay on the course
  • help register our walkers before the event begins
  • distribute Midnight Memory Walk T-shirts in the days before

Why your support matters

Rotherham Hospice cares for families experiencing an end-of-life illness, both physically and emotionally. As a charity, Rotherham Hospice needs to raise £3 million each year to fund vital end-of-life services and we can only do it thanks to our amazing supporters like you.
