Leck­hamp­ton Court Hos­pice is asking peo­ple to be­come shining stars and light up the streets of Chel­tenham in sup­port of fam­i­lies need­ing its care.

The hos­pice’s an­nual 10km walk un­der the stars with a party at­mos­phere, Starlight Hike, is back on Satur­day Oc­to­ber, 19, spon­sored by CAPITA. On­line reg­is­tra­tion is open now with early dis­count for in­di­vid­u­als sign­ing up be­fore mid­night on Mon­day, Au­gust 26.

Last year 540 walk­ers sport­ing neon out­fits and flash­ing lights walked un­der the stars, rais­ing £60,000 for the hos­pice and its ser­vices.

Jamie Col­lier f was there last year in mem­ory of her Dad who was cared for at the hos­pice. She said “This night time walk is an up­lift­ing cel­e­bra­tion of all those we love and miss, while rais­ing vi­tal funds so more fam­i­lies can re­ceive the care they so des­per­ately need.”

Start­ing and fin­ish­ing at St Ed­ward’s Prep School, Charlton Kings, Chel­tenham there will be live en­ter­tain­ment and up­lift­ing music from The Rock Choir, a vi­brant and fun warm up from Club­ber­cise and re­fresh­ments avail­able be­fore set­ting out on the mar­shalled 10k walk.
