Sleep Walk Update

Thank you for so much your support as a Rowcroft Sleepwalker!

Our previous Sleep Walks have proved successful in raising vital funds for the hospice, but we’d like you to know that we’re resting The Sleep Walk for 2023 while we offer you a new and exciting dance event. This is due to take place in September 2023 and we’d really love you to get into the groove and dance the day away with us while raising much-needed funds to care for our patients and their loved ones. Please keep an eye on our events pages for more information in due course. Thanks once again for your continued support.

Thank you for your support!

More than 500 walkers took part in Rowcroft’s Sleep Walk event on Saturday 2 July, raising more than £40k for the hospice!

With this year’s theme of ‘Saturday night at the movies’, the event saw participants parading film-star fancy dress costumes and we had some amazing groups dressed up as Top Gun, 101 Dalmatians, Jurassic Park and the Minions to name just a few. It was a fantastic night with a wonderful atmosphere! The images from the night are now available to view on our Facebook page.

The best night ever!

The Sleep Walk is an annual highlight in Rowcroft’s calendar and this year’s event was more amazing and memorable than ever!

We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who kindly donated their time to support the hospice at The Sleep Walk! Without your amazing help, we wouldn’t be able to raise vital funds to care for patients and their families across South Devon.

A massive thanks to all the local businesses who also supported The Sleep Walk, including Off Beat Dance, Cater Food, Casino Select, Clothing Your Way, Sashes and Trophie Medals, London Boy Blue, and Licensed to eat Chelston. We’re incredibly grateful for our local community.

You made a difference

In the 11 years that Rowcroft’s Sleep Walk has been running, our fabulous Sleep Walkers have raised more than £1.5m to care for local patients with life-limiting illnesses.

So far, our Sleep Walkers have raised more than £40k with sponsorship money still coming in! To find out more about paying in your sponsorship, please visit our frequently asked questions.

Your support will enable our dedicated nurses and care teams to provide specialist support to local patients and their families in their own homes across South Devon – from Dartmouth to Dawlish and up onto Dartmoor – and in Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay. We currently care for more than 2000 patients each year.

Virtual Sleep Walk

We also offer the ‘virtual’ Sleep Walk option for those who prefer to take part in The Sleep Walk independently in their own way.

Good luck to all our fabulous virtual participants who are creating a route of their choice and walking at any time that suits them between Saturday 2 July and Sunday 10 July.
