Birthday Weekend Walk

Any excuse to get out and celebrate!

We love a good birthday celebration and we know you do to. The Nightingale was established on 21st August 2002 and because we’re not sure if we’ll be able to celebrate together, we’re throwing a Birthday Weekend Walk!

It couldn’t be simpler. Over the weekend of 21st August, we want you to walk 10k your own way. It could be with friends, family, work colleagues, neighbours (anyone!), the more the merrier. We hope you’ll dress for the occasion, the brighter the better, think disco, pyjamas, superheroes – just not your birthday suit.


Where you walk is up to you. Whether in your local park, along your high street or even in your home, we don’t mind. You can use our suggested routes and see other Birthday Walkers on your way or make up your own route.

If you can’t manage 10k, no problem! If you want to walk more than 10k again, no problem! Walk as far as you feel comfortable, we don’t mind how you do it – as long as you have fun.

Once you register we’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll send you suggested walking routes, playlists to get you in the walking mood and a few surprises in the lead up to the big birthday!

We won’t let Covid-19 stop us from celebrating.

Registration is £15 per person and we encourage you to raise £100 in sponsorship which will go towards vital cancer support. Our Fundraising Guide has great tips to help you set up a JustGiving page or Facebook Donation page.

We can’t wait to celebrate our birthday with you!


  • Registration for the Birthday Weekend Walk is £15, if you would like to donate more than this for your registration, please write in the total amount you would like to pay.
