A walk under the stars
Join hundreds of supporters at Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Thames Valley on Saturday 21 October at 6.30pm.
Get together with friends and family to walk the 5k or 10k route around the beautiful grounds of Pangbourne College. With an electrifying warm up from Clubbercise and live music from local band Rufus Ruffcut, you’ll be kept entertained before you head out on this unique walk through ground normally closed to the public.
They’ll be chance to purchase hot and cold food and drinks from the on site canteen, as well as take part in our raffle and purchase glowing memorabilia to get you all kitted out before the walk.
This is an evening not to be missed as you join together with hundreds of others to celebrate the lives of those we love and miss.
Starlight Hike Thames Valley is also a dog-friendly event, so bring along your furry friends on the night to join you for the walk.

Fill a family's final moments together with love
Last year over 8,100 people across the country were cared for by Sue Ryder’s hospice teams, including from our Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice and Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire or in their own homes. Sue Ryder doctors and nurses can manage patients’ pain and symptoms and make more space for a family’s final days to be filled with love.
By taking part in Sue Ryder Starlight Hike you’re helping our specialist teams to provide expert care which means the end of people’s lives can be filled with friendship, family and love in their final moments together.
Sadly, almost all of us will experience the loss of a loved one - your support can help more people get the end-of-life care they need and deserve.
Fundraise for Sue Ryder
You can set up a JustGiving page to start fundraising for Sue Ryder and help us to continue providing our compassionate care. It's quick, easy and you can share with others while keeping track of your fundraising.
