A merry band of walkers will take to the countryside paths and streets of Ripon for the annual Sunrise Walk in aid of Saint Michael’s Hospice, on Sunday October 8.

The ever-popular walk is sponsored by Eura Audit Ripon and organised by the Crimple Valley Fundraising Group, raising vital funds to support more local families affected by terminal illness and bereavement.




The six-mile route starts from Sawley Village Hall before dawn, and will see scores of local people make their way towards the stunning Fountains Abbey and down through Studley Royal Deer Park as the sun rises.

As walkers arrive back at sunrise, each will be greeted with breakfast refreshments at Ripon Cathedral Hall.

The unique event not only offers the community a spectacular glimpse of historical Ripon City, but is a chance to make a real difference to the lives of local people.




Sandra Gilbert, Chairman of the Crimple Valley Fundraising Group, said:

It is hard to describe the feeling as you set off in the dark, torch in hand with a great group of people and experience the dawn rising around you as the deer move through the park – it is very atmospheric.

Walkers tell us that the early start is worthwhile for the beautiful views across Ripon, and following the walk, people have the rest of their Sunday to enjoy.


Participants are encouraged to secure their place as soon as possible. Registration is just £10 for adults and £5 for under 15s, including a breakfast sandwich and a warming cuppa. For further details or to sign up, contact the Crimple Valley Fundraising Group on: 07770 343 027 Email:
