This year will see the 10th and final Starlight Walk take place on Saturday 9th July. During the last ten years, the Stalight Walk has raised over £1.4 million for Peace Hospice Care and 2016 looks set to be an extraordinary event.
The original idea of a Starlight Walk arose from a regional fundraising meeting. Three nurses from St Luke’s Hospice at Winsford in Cheshire had been unable to enter a moonlight walk run by a Breast Cancer charity, so decided to organise one for their Hospice. The fundraising team expected about a dozen people to take part, but 500 walked, raising more money than anyone had imagined. Inspired by their success, the Peace Hospice emulated their example, raising £125,000 in the first year.
