Lantern Walk 2022

Date: Saturday 22 October 2022
Start Time: 19:00:00
Location: Carlisle Racecourse, Durdar Rd, Carlisle CA2 4TS


UPDATE 17/10/22: Thank you so much for your interest in Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw’s Lantern Walk. Your kindness and commitment to helping ensure local families have access to compassionate care is valued beyond measure.

However, it is with great sadness that we have to announce we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our Lantern Walk for 2022.

We had been very much looking forward to inviting everyone back to an event like this, where we can all celebrate together and have fun, whilst remembering our loved ones. But, as you well know, we are still living through tough times. Though we are grateful for all the support we receive in whatever form it may take we do recognise that these times have affected everyone, including ourselves.

This decision to not go ahead as planned was not taken lightly, but it simply down to the balance in costs for supporting an event on this scale. We know that although you were all hoping to experience a large atmosphere, reflecting the enormity of your love, celebration and joy towards your loved one, but we also know you would not want your vital fundraising support to be subsidising this event rather than going directly to families that we care and would have been the opposite of the purpose of holding a fundraising event on this scale.

We know that without the kindness of people like you in our local community, we could not provide the care needed at a time when it is needed the most. We are very sorry to have to change our plans in this way, but we do hope that you would still consider joining us in 2023, when we hope to be able to once again hold an event for all the family.

For those people who've already signed up to the event, we will still be inviting those supporters, if they wish to do so, to meet on Saturday, October 22nd and collectively take in the Carlisle City of Lights experience which was part of the original offering, thanks to the generosity of Carlisle City Council’s Discover Carlisle team. Those individuals have been contacted directly with the details.

Unfortunately, we're not able to accommodate any further supporters on this smaller-scale meet-up but look forward to welcoming our community to upcoming events.

Thank you again, for everything you are doing to support Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. You are making a real difference.
