This year's routes

We have Night to Shine walks taking place in towns across east Kent so it's easy to find your nearest and join in the fun.

Ashford: 5 miles (Sign-in 17:30 - 19:00) - View map

A circular route exploring much of the north of the town before crossing the Eureka Skyway and returning to claim your well-deserved finisher's medal.

Broadstairs: 5 miles (Sign-in 17:30 - 19:00) - View map

A beautiful coastal route following the clifftop paths from the heart of Broadstairs to Ramsgate before returning.

Canterbury: 5 miles (Sign-in 17:30 - 19:00) - View map

A scenic night-time stroll through the historic heart of the city, passing key landmarks such as Canterbury Cathedral, Marlowe Theatre, Westgate Towers and City Wall before returning to finish at Canterbury College.

T-shirt collection days

Most walkers will collect their T-shirt at the event on Friday 20th September. However, if you wish to collect yours ahead of the walk, you can do so during our two T-shirt collection days.

T-shirts will be available from your local Pilgrims Hospice reception during the following timeslots:

While you are walking..

While you are walking, our nurses are providing skilled and compassionate care, 24 hours a day, free of charge, to patients, their carers and families right across east Kent.

£100 could pay for 5 hours of nursing care for someone living with a life-limiting illness; making them comfortable, bringing pain under control and enabling them to live well until the end of life. Your support makes all the difference so download a sponsorship form and start fundraising today!



A Night to Shine couldn’t raise the fantastic amount it does for Pilgrims Hospices without the kind sponsorship of the following organisations: Leydon Lettings, Givaudan, Furley Page Solicitors and Thorley Taverns.
