Walk To Remember - In Memory of David Magill

£10.00 - Sign Up Now
Date & Time: 2pm to 5pm Sunday 8th September 2024
Entry cost: Adult £10

Step up on Sunday 8th September in tribute to our loved ones lost to a chest, heart or stroke illness and in support of the up to 1 in 3 people across NI living with one of these devastating health conditions. This event is in tribute to an amazing volunteer, fundraiser and friend to NICHS, David Magill MBE...

Join the Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke team for a stunning Sunday stroll as we take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the lives of those who will remain in our hearts forever. At this beautiful location we will reflect, remember and walk together to help change local lives now and save them in the future.

Setting off from the beautiful surroundings of Hazelbank Park, we will take in the sights and sounds of the magnificent Coronation Garden before we walk 1.8 miles to Jordanstown Loughshore Park to enjoy some magical musical entertainment at the bandstand. Our return journey takes us back to Hazelbank Park where we will write messages of love to those no longer with us on our NICHS Always In My Heart Memory Wall.

This event is a very special gathering for all ages and abilities and absolutely everyone is welcome to come along - including four-legged friends on leads. Enjoy the picturesque views across Belfast Lough, breathe in the sea air and take some time out to reflect and share happy memories with old friends and new.

If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever

This event is in special tribute to local hotelier David Magill who volunteered generously and selflessly for us for over 30 years. David first began his NICHs relationship when he agreed to chair the Glengormley Fundraising Support Group. Little could he have known that over three decades later he would have helped raise over £350,000 for our cause through a wide range of events and activities. He was deservedly awarded the MBE in 2005, which he accepted on behalf of all the volunteers. David sadly passed away in November 2021 but is very fondly remembered by all his friends at NICHS, which is why we have chosen to walk in his footsteps, along his favourite route, in honour of all those who like David are kind, generous and caring, and leave a lasting legacy of a desire to help others.
