Sign up to support Grief Encounter on 6th March 2022 and register your interest today to walk in memory of a loved one. We will send you an event pack and help you maximise your fundraising efforts.

  • Walk on your own, with your household or friends and don’t forget to include the dog!
  • Choose your route and distance, perhaps a collective 26 mile marathon or 26 laps of your local park
  • Raise funds in memory of your loved one, by creating a forget-me-not walk Justgiving page
  • You could also download a sponsorship form as an alternative way to fundraise

There is no minimum fundraising target. For every £26 you raise, you could fund the cost of a grieftalk helpline session, providing essential emotional support for a grieving child or young person, following the death of a parent.

Register below for next year’s walk or if you decide to walk sooner, a member of our fundraising team will be in touch.

Thank you
