HOSPICE STARLIGHT WALK SEEKS 2,000 WOMEN


T


he Peace Hospice recently launched its Starlight Walk fundraising event at Watford


Football Club. This year celebrates the fifth anniversary of


the all female midnight walk, which has been the charity‘s biggest fundraiser to date. A six-mile wheelchair friendly route is being


introduced this year as well as the traditional 13 mile course, to encourage those to sign up who feel a half marathon is too big a distance to cover. Celebrity couple and long time Hospice


supporters Martin and Shirlie Kemp continue to show their support and have already been joined this year by Birds of a Feather actress Linda Robson. More celebrities are expected to back the Starlight Walk over the coming months. Watford Football Club showed its community


ties by hosting the Starlight Walk launch at Vicarage Road before the fixture against Derby County on January 15. Players donned this year‘s must have green t-shirts, while a giant banner was also paraded on the pitch before kick -off. Chair of the Starlight Walk committee, Linda Topping, said ―I‘m thrilled with the continued


support from local people for our beloved Peace Hospice. I am amazed at how many women turn out every year; to date we‘ve had over 5,000 participants. Please sign up and make this year the biggest and best Starlight Walk yet.‖ The Peace Hospice, based in Watford, cares for


people living with a life limiting or terminal illness and supports their families from across South West Hertfordshire. It provides inpatient care, day care, an outpatient service, a hospice at home service as well as bereavement support. The Hospice needs to raise £3 million of


charitable income this year in order to run and develop its services. All the care that the Hospice provides to its patients and their families is free. You can register now at www.starlight.org.uk
