More than 650 people turned out on Saturday night for the Sue Ryder Starlight Walk at St John’s Hospice to help raise vital funds supporting the work of the hospice’s bereavement team.
The annual fundraiser helps the hospice – based in Moggerhanger – provide around 90,000 hours of care to people across Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
Shirley Scotcher, head of hospice fundraising at Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice, said: “The Starlight Walk is a fun way of getting family, friends and colleagues together and getting to see some great locations at night.
“On the night there is also the opportunity to remember loved ones we have lost. Every single one of our walkers loved the Memory Garden, a space where people have the chance to reflect on fond memories of loved ones who are no longer with us.
“One in four of us is living with a life-changing condition. That is why Sue Ryder relies on local events like these more than ever to deliver the care that people need.”
