A Starlight Walk has been arranged to raise money for Garden House Hospice.

Preparations for the event were launched last week by Cllr Alison Ashley, chairman of North Herts District Council, and hospice chairman David Heymans.

This is a new event, with the Comet among the sponsors, in the Garden House calendar and the hospice is hoping that many of their supporters will join them to raise much needed funds to maintain the level of care that is needed by patients and their families.

The Starlight Walk, a ladies only sponsored event, will leave from North Herts Leisure Centre just before midnight on September 12 and the 10-mile circular route will take the walkers towards Hitchin and around Letchworth GC to surround the hospice with support throughout the night.
