Beckenham Place Park Walk and Talk event – Meeting others in cancer loss

November 4 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm

On Saturday 4th November 2023 we will be hosting an informal walk and talk event at Beckenham Place Park in London.

This event is specifically for people who have lost a loved one to cancer. This event is for people aged 18 and over. 

Where are we walking?
The walk will be around the grounds of Beckenham Place Park following marked paths with some rough terrain and parts in covered woodland trees. There are some small hilly parts but overall the walk is flat.

It will last approximately an hour and 15 minutes.

Can anyone take part?
Our walk is open to any adult who has had a loved one die from cancer. The aim is to give you space to meet and talk with others who have experienced a similar loss, which our users tell us they find extremely helpful.

We will be limiting the number of walkers to 11 people so that we do not have too large a walking group. One of our volunteers will be hosting the event to walk and talk alongside you.

Please note that we do not allow guests unless you let us know in advance (as we are capping the number of attendees for each walk).

Pets and children are also not able to attend.

What are the timings for the day?
Walkers will be meeting at 11:45am and starting at 12:00pm.

We aim to complete the walk just over one hour later, at approximately 13:15pm.

Do I need to be a professional walker?
Definitely not. The event is about being together, spending time with others who have experienced similar things, and being outdoors. It’s not about being fit or racing.
