So what is the
Sparkle Night Walk?
Ashgate Hospicecare's Sparkle Night Walk is an award-winning fundraising event and North Derbyshire’s most exciting night of the year! It is a 10km walk through Chesterfield that will take place on Saturday 10th July 2021 to help raise vital funds for your local hospice.
After a very successful Virtual Sparkle event in 2020, we hope that Sparkle will return to its usual format in 2021.

We have never needed
your support more
Ashgate Hospicecare relies on the generosity of our community to raise millions of pounds each year to help fund our specialist care. With our shops having to close and our biggest fundraising events going virtual, COVID-19 has presented us with huge ongoing funding challenges.
Help us make the 2021 Sparkle Night Walk the biggest and the best yet so that we can continue to provide the exceptional end of life care for which we are known both on our Inpatient Unit at Old Brampton in Chesterfield and in the community. Together, we can help to raise much-needed funds at a time when the demand for our services has never been greater and our funding has never been more uncertain. Every £1 raised will make a huge difference. So, thank you for your support. We wouldn't be here without it.

Entertainment will start from 8pm, walkers are able to arrive on-site from 7:30pm. Everybody will set off together to begin the 10km walk at 10pm.
