Dedicated to the Ones We Love – Walking in Memory for Coronavirus Loss
June 11 @ 10:45 am - 2:30 pm
On Saturday 11th June we will be undertaking a 6 mile walk to raise money for The Loss Foundation. We will be walking and holding in mind our dearest loved ones who are no longer here with us. This event is specifically for people who have lost a loved one to coronavirus.
Where are we walking?
We’ve arranged an 6 mile walk starting with a stroll from Notting Hill Gate and take in Albert Memorial and Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and St James Park. The last part of the walk will take in the National Covid Memorial Wall with the walk ending at Waterloo.
The walking route is a very straight and flat pathed route, making it easily accessible for all.
Can anyone take part?
Our walk will be for people who have lost a loved one to coronavirus. 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 18 people so that we do not have too large a walking group. Some of our volunteers will also be joining on the day to walk and talk alongside you.
What are the timings for the day?
Walkers will be meeting at 10:30am at Notting Hill Gate Tube Station exit 1 for a 10:45am start.
There will be regular stops with time to eat lunch. We will aim to end the walk between 2:00pm – 3:00pm in Waterloo. People are welcome to walk shorter distances and leave at St James’s Park.
Do I need to be a professional walker?
Definitely not. The day is about being together, spending time with others who have experienced similar things, and being outdoors. It’s not about being fit or racing.

All walkers need to raise a minimum of £100 to take part in the walk so that we can continue to provide our bereavement support services. These have grown exponentially over the last year and we need your help to continue them. This can either be self-funding, by asking friends and family to sponsor you or a mix, whichever works for you. We will send you a link to our fundraising page and also send you a sponsorship form to help you with your fundraising efforts.
