For a third successive year the charity is delighted to be returning to Castle Howard near York for our Walk Ten event.

Enjoy a 10k twilight walk in support of your local Marie Curie Nurses joining hundreds of people as you walk through the beautiful grounds and estate of Castle Howard, passing lakes and monuments, through rolling fields and enchanting woodland before returning through magically lit gardens as the evening falls.

Write your own personal message for a loved one on a candle bag and our glowing display of remembrance will welcome you on your return after which you can picnic or treat yourself to something special from our caterers whilst enjoying the live entertainment.

The evening concludes with a special Nursing message and a celebration of light at 10pm, the time at which our nurses are starting their shifts in a patient’s home.

Last year the event raised over £30k but in 2013 please help us to raise even more for nursing care in your local community so that as many terminally patients as possible can continue to be treated in their own homes.

Please note that dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead. The route is not suitable however for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
