More than 1000 ladies sign up for The Sleep Walk 2016

04 February 2016

More than half of the places available for Rowcroft Hospice’s 2016 Sleep Walk have been filled within two weeks of registration officially opening.

The hospice’s flagship event has sold out in record time for the last two years running and is on track to do so again in 2016, with more than 1000 ladies already signed up.

This year the annual ladies-only night walk is taking place on Saturday 9 July and has a 1980s party theme.  

Daniel Robson, Rowcroft’s Events Manager, said: “We’d like to thank everyone who has already signed up for The Sleep Walk 2016 for their support, but we’re also urging all those who would still like to register to do so as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!”

All those who sign up online before 29 February will receive an exclusive discount to South Devon’s biggest girls’ night out, securing their place for only £12, instead of the usual £15 full ticket price.

Daniel added: “By taking part and raising funds for Rowcroft you’ll be helping people living with life-limiting illnesses in your community to spend precious time with friends and family.

“Sign up today at and help to make every day the best day possible for people who need your help in South Devon.”

Since it launched five years ago The Sleep Walk has raised an incredible £863,252, helping to support thousands of Rowcroft’s patients and their families.

Rowcroft’s Fundraising Manager, Rachael Bryett, said: “More than 70% of our funding comes from the local community so we rely heavily on all our Sleep Walkers raising as much in sponsorship as they can for the hospice. This year we’re hoping to reach an all-time Sleep Walk fundraising total of £1 million.”

The Sleep Walk is open to all ladies over ten-years-old.

Organisers are also encouraging all those who would like to volunteer at the event to get in touch.

Daniel added: “We couldn’t put on such an important fundraising event without the support of hundreds of amazing volunteers.

“We encourage anyone who would like to volunteer to visit to find out more.”
