Sign up and raise vital funds

Men’s Walk, the popular fundraising event from local hospice Hospiscare, returns to Double Locks on 18 March 2023 and participants who sign up before the New Year could be in with the chance to win tickets to watch the Exeter Chiefs at home at Sandy Park.

Men’s Walk returns for its 12th year with all the event’s firm favourites in place: a walk, pint, pasty and of course the rugby! Anyone can take part and join the Hospsicare team at Double Locks to raise much-needed funds for local people and their families living with terminal illness. Also returning for this year is the chance to take part ‘your way’ with walkers setting their own route, distance and location.

Everyone who takes part will receive their own Men’s Walk t-shirt plus a complimentary beer from Exeter Brewery and pasty from Chunk of Devon to enjoy after completing the walk.

Proudly sponsoring their tenth Men’s Walk, leading independent property agents Wilkinson Grant are working closely with the Hospiscare to make 2023’s event the best yet.

Martin Stokke, Senior Events Fundraiser, comments "Last year, over 1,100 people across Devon stepped up in support of local end-of-life care. Those dedicated individuals collectively raised a phenomenal £103,000, helping to secure our vital care services for those most in need for the year to come. This year, we have something very special instore to thank our Men’s Walkers and we can’t wait to reveal more in the New Year.

“With Exeter Chiefs and Exeter City playing away on the day of the event, we’re anticipating another sell-out year. To anyone considering taking part, sign up today to avoid missing out and help local people and their families affected by terminal illnesses.
