News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

Dorothy House is looking for fabulous mums, dads, carers and children 12+ to take on a night of walking, talking and dancing in Bath on Saturday 15 June.

Event highlights include a free drink upon arrival, numerous stalls including an environmentally friendly face paint bar and a photo booth, a fully marshalled 5K or 10K walk, and finally a DJ bringing in the party vibes!

The Midnight Walk is for anyone aged 12 or more, and starts at the Bath Pavilion. Arrival is from 9pm, with time to enjoy drinks, food, fun and funky warm-up with Cheryl Sprinkler from Mojo Moves. This year, there’ll be both the usual 5K walk, as well as a brand new 10K route for those looking to push themselves!

The 10K walkers will set off at 10pm, followed by the 5K walkers heading out at 11pm, enjoying the sights of Bath on a wonderful summer night.

This year’s theme is all about pyjamas – it will be the biggest PJ party in town! The Hospice is looking for people to get into the bedtime spirit by snuggling into their own pyjamas, onesies or dressing gowns. Alternatively, walkers are encouraged to upcycle some gorgeous nightwear from one of our Dorothy House shops!

All the walkers will be back at Bath Pavilion around midnight where everyone will continue to celebrate with the legendry slumber party! Celebrations at the Pavilion will finish at 1.30am.

Every penny raised from the Midnight Walk will help fund the Dorothy House ‘Hospice at Home’ service. Dorothy House is asking each walker to aim to raise a minimum of £50, which could fund two hours of overnight care, provided by one of the charity’s compassionate, skilled and experienced Hospice at Home carers.

Kerry Evans is taking part in the Midnight Walk. Dorothy House looked after her step dad Kevin and she said, “We will be forever grateful to all the staff at Dorothy House who contributed to looking after Kevin and us as a family. For the amazing and tender care and the time and effort they gave to Kevin to ensure his time at Dorothy House was as wonderful as it could be.

“The laughs they provided to keep us all smiling and even to the tears they shared with us after he took his last breath. Nothing was ever too much trouble.”
