Now in its 10th year and support for the St Helena Midnight Walk continues to grow.

This year both men and women are invited, and participants can take part in either a 3.5 or 7 mile walk around Colchester to raise money for the charity.

Both routes stop at Colchester Rugby Football Club where a memory tree is placed, allowing walkers a moment of reflection and remembrance. Tags are also available for walkers to leave a message on the tree.

When and where

The walk is on Saturday 23rd June 2018 and starts and finishes at a brand NEW venue: Stanfords, The Livestock Market, Wyncolls Road, CO4 9HU 

Who can walk?

Anyone over the age of 11, the route is wheelchair friendly.

What to wear

This year’s theme is Hats and Hair dos! Dig out the most extravagant hat, weave the wildest hair do or don the craziest wig! 

Headwear can be teamed up with a special tenth anniversary Midnight Walk t-shirt (available to purchase online at or calling 01206 931468).
