Sunflower Stroll

Join our Sunflower Stroll and complete a walk in memory of a loved one and to celebrate hospice care in your community.

You will begin your walk at Aldon Fields which is usually only accessible with a permit. Then you will make your way down to Ninesprings and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Country Park where you will be taken on a journey around woodlands and waterfalls. The route which is roughly 4km finishes at the Yeovil Hospice where we will welcome you to our fabulous garden. You can view the route here.

Book your place at our early bird price of just £5* (suggested sponsorship £50) and you will receive 

  • Dedication bib 
  • Memory marker to place in the hospice garden
  • Live music from local musicians in our hospice garden

*price will increase to £7

Upgrade your ticket by selecting the option below to include a glass of prosecco (over 18s only) or a cream tea box* to enjoy with live music from local musicians in our hospice garden.

Raise sponsorship in memory of a loved one or to support hospice care in your community.

*unfortunately these contain gluten and are not suitable for vegans.

£50 could pay for a patient spending a day in our Sunflower Centre Day Hospice, meeting people in similar situations, receiving important symptom control and providing crucial respite for carers. 
£100 could pay for a community assessment visit, giving patients advice on equipment, which could help them spend more quality time with their family at home.

Anyone who raises more than £50 can collect a sunflower to wear on the day. You can kickstart your fundraising by clicking the links below. Alternatively, if you would prefer to make a donation you can do so on via the form below.
