TIME is running out to register for Walk for Wards to support the Stars Appeal, Salisbury Hospital’s Charity.

Walk for Wards takes place on Sunday, July 7 at Wilton House. Those wishing to take part have until Sunday (June 30) to register.

Entry is free for the event, which has received fantastic support with over 1,800 walkers already signed up.

Dr Tracey Parker, consultant in blood cancers on the Pembroke Unit at Salisbury Hospital, and Stars Appeal Ambassador, said: “Every day I see first-hand the difference that the Stars Appeal makes to our patients and their families across the hospital.

“Woven into the fabric of our hospital, which strives for the best possible experience for everyone, are hundreds of Stars Appeal funded projects.

“Like the complimentary Wi-Fi, the children’s play assistant and the cancer wellbeing programmes.

“On a grander scale, state-of-the-art equipment and buildings, like the MRI scanner and the Breast Unit, benefit thousands of patients every year. Not least those under my care, who face cancer.

“Your support means that we can achieve these great projects. With the funds raised at Walk for Wards, the Stars Appeal can keep striving for great things to help local people at Salisbury Hospital.”

There are three routes to choose from – 3k, 5k and 10k. Walkers need to sign up in advance and commit to raising at least £20 sponsorship per person for a ward or department at the Hospital that’s special to them.

Also included in the entry is a free lunch and admission to the Wilton House grounds as well as the adventure playground after the walk.

By taking part walkers can help towards the Stars Appeal’s goal of raising £100,000 to make a difference to patients, their families, and staff at Salisbury District Hospital.

Walk for Wards is sponsored by Salisbury Reds and held by kind permission of the Earl of Pembroke, the President of the Stars Appeal, with support from Wilton Rotary Club.
