Hundreds of women in Starlight Walk

TONIGHT (Saturday) hundreds of women will take to the streets for a late night walk to raise money for a charity which supports the terminally ill.

More than 400 have signed up for this year’s Starlight Walk.

The annual event, backed by The Comet is in aid of Letchworth GC-based Garden House Hospice, which cares of terminally ill patients in North Hertfordshire and Stevenage.

Participants will tackle either a six-mile or 10-mile course - marshalled by male volunteers - which starts and finishes at North Hertfordshire Leisure Centre in Letchworth GC.

Jo Wiffen, community fundraiser for the hospice, said that following an appeal by The Comet last week for women to come forward numbers have passed the 400 mark.

“It looks like our numbers are going to be about the same as last year so that’s fantastic, and people are still signing up,” she said.

“We are just hoping for a fine night as that’s the one thing out of our control!”
