Newcastle – Walk and Talk event – Meeting others in loss
12 February @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am
On 12th February 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.
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 2.7 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.
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 11:30a-11:45am.
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.
