Newcastle – Walk and Talk event – Meeting others in cancer loss

May 28 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

On 28th May 2023 we will be hosting an informal walk and talk event at Tyne Riverside Country Park, in the area of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The walk will last approximately an hour and end at the village of Ovingham.

This event is specifically for people who have lost a loved one to cancer.

Where are we walking?
We’ve arranged a flat countryside walk, which is 2.5 miles long, following the River Tyne. It is a very straight and flat route, making it easily accessible for all.

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 12 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 10:30am.

We aim to complete the walk one hour later, at approximately 11:30am.

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.
