Thank you to everyone who walked with us at this year’s Girls Night Out, the sponsored walk for women.

You'll be able to join thousands of others as they don their pyjamas, a pair of glowing bunny ears and a huge smile and walk 11.2 or six miles through Bury St Edmunds.

Girls Night Out is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This year, around 2,000 women signed up!

At St Nicholas Hospice Care we believe everyone matters in life and death. Your sponsorship money enables us to equip the community, provide care and to strive for something better for people living with dying, death and grief.

Our services are entirely free to all, but this is only possible with continuing support.


Remember someone special

At this year’s walk we will remember all those that we have walked for over the years. Please bring your torch for a special Memory Minute before the walk starts. Keep an eye out for our memory boards which will be on Angel Hill and at the Hospice building.


Join us and…

  • have a fun night out this September

  • put on your pyjamas (and a pair of comfy trainers)

  • bring a team of your girlfriends

  • follow our dedicated Girls Night Out Facebook page to join our fantastic community of women walkers!

  • bring your smartphone and camera to take photos, then upload them on our Facebook page.

  1. First of all, we need you to register. Register yourself, or a team, you are all welcome. You'll be taken to our event registration system.

Who takes part?

Here are just a few of the incredible teams and individuals that took part in last year's Girls Night Out. We're proud that many of our walkers return every year, which is helping us to make this year bigger and better than ever before.

The memory minute was such a lovely idea. I do the walk in memory of my grandad and to be able to take the time surrounded by thousands of other women all remembering their loved ones really was something special. It’s hard to put into words how it felt. Other than to say magical.

We lost our mum back in October of last year. She was cared for at home by our father, but we will never forget the support we received from the hospice during that time. They came in and within ten minutes it was like we had known them forever. They were just brilliant. When mum died they were there, and for us it was just like having another member of the family with us.
— Donna, from Stowmarket, walking with her sister Nicki and their Slimming World group
We do the walk for our lovely friend Tess. Tess was just one of those people that you couldn’t help but love. She really did light up a room. After a long and bravely fought battle with cancer she passed away. She was just 36 at the time. We walk so everyone can have the care and support Tess and her family did.
— Nina, from Bury, walking with friends Sally and Maria
