Prashant Bhojani first took part in the Midnight Walk in 2017. Last year, he was the proud leader of the Apple Tree Warriors Midnight Walk Team, a fitness group made up of like-minded people at the Apple Tree Centre, run by Crawley’s Hindu Temple:
“The organisation of the Midnight Walk is fantastic. I literally only have positive things to say about it – I can’t fault it. It’s great fun, it’s safe and well organised – particularly if the weather is kind to you! There are volunteers showing you the way every time you need to make a turn.
Whether people complete two miles or 20 miles it doesn’t matter. It’s about joining in, helping the community and supporting our local hospice.
The walk is also an opportunity to do something for yourself as well as for other people. It’s a great thing to do for self-development, to push yourself and have a great experience. It can be a bit gruelling – it is a real challenge, but I’d urge anyone to pick the distance that best suits them and go for it.”
To make sure you are safe we recommend you carry the following items:
- A fully charged mobile phone
- Plenty of water
- Plenty of energy supplying snacks
- Hand sanitiser – to use after coming in to contact with public gates/ handrails
- Method of payment if you need more water/ snacks or a taxi home
- Water-proof coat/ jacket
- Your lantern for the reflective space (TBC)
- Photos of your loved one for the memory wall
“It is such a fun and welcoming environment and it’s inspiring seeing everyone there for the same reason. That feeling doesn’t wear off – I love it – there’s a real sense of camaraderie. The support you get on the route is great too, the marshals give you positive reinforcement the whole way round. – Laura Connolly, Midnight Walker since 2011
