Peace Hospice Care Starlight Walk 2015

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.
