Come and join Team Rosemere for our biggest event of the year! Now in its 10th year, Walk in the Dark is an exciting opportunity to join hundreds of other walkers trekking the 11 miles route between Chorley and Preston Hospital. Last year Walk in the Dark raised a staggering total of £55,000 towards our Ribblesdale Ward Appeal. Can you help us smash that total this year?

The success of this event wouldn’t be possible without our generous sponsors The Eric Wright Group who help cover the costs of organising this amazing event.

Dress as brightly as you like as we set off at 9pm on 27th April. (Click here to see photographs of last year's walkers).

Each walker who registers in advance will receive a goody bag and water, along with a bacon or sausage butty at the finish line at Charters Restaurant in Preston Hospital.

Online entries close on Monday 22nd April, but you can still enter on the night. The cost to enter rises to £20 pp. So register now to save money….

If you are taking part in or intend to join us this Saturday for our Walk in the Dark, please beware of the following parking restrictions/arrangements at both Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley General Hospital for participants and their families. 

The hospital trust recently introduced a new car parking system for both staff and visitors at Royal Preston and Chorley Hospitals. The new system uses ANPR technology and will issue a fixed penalty notice if the following instructions aren’t followed.

We have made arrangements for free parking at both sites using these guidelines;

Participants wishing to park at Royal Preston Hospital need to park in Car Park E which is a Staff Car Park next to the hospital entrance, adjacent to St Clares RC Church. This is right next to where you will catch the bus service (please call us to reserve your seats before 4pm on Friday 26th April) available to take you to the start point at Chorley. Parking is permitted here between the hours of 18.00 on 27th and 04.00 on 28th April.

For those getting dropped off at Chorley Hospital, please park in Car Park K (visitors car park). Parking will be permitted here between 18.00 and Midnight on 27th April. If you have friends and family coming to support you on the night, please make them aware of these arrangements. 

Both of these car parks are free to access between these times and can also be accessed multiple times, as long as it is not before or after the permitted times above

Thank you once again for your support of Rosemere. We look forward to seeing you and your fellow walkers on Saturday 27th April. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us on 01772 522913.
