Southern Area Hospice Services are delighted to be once again supporting longtime volunteer and event organiser, Deborah Kennedy, as she looks forward to her 32nd Annual Towpath Walk taking place on Sunday, April 23.

Deborah and the Hospice are inviting people from all towns and communities in the Southern Trust to take part in the 6 mile walking challenge which sets off from the Basin Walk carpark (outside Cue Club) in Newry at 12pm sharp.

The walk will continue out along the Newry towpath as far as Steenson’s Bridge and back again, with walkers receiving some refreshments at the halfway point for a short rest before turning to head back to the Cue Cub. Free parking is available at the Basin Walk carpark on this day.

Deborah commented: “I am thrilled to be back organising the Hospice Towpath Walk for its 32nd year. This event has raised over £335,000 for our local Hospice to date, and I am hoping this year will be just as successful as the rest.

“Everyone is welcome to take part in this event as we walk together to raise much needed funds. I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, April 23.”

Registration for this event is free, and so we ask that each person who registers, if they can raise a minimum of £30 for this fantastic event. You can register online now via our events calendar at or phone our Fundraising Office 028 3026 7711.

All walkers must pre-register if they would like to take part, as there will be no registration on the day.
