PAINT THE TOWN OR­ANGE

Kent Life - - Charity News -

Hospice char­ity el­lenor is invit­ing Kent Life read­ers to help paint Gravesend or­ange for its big­gest event yet, the Twi­light Walk, re­turn­ing on 21 Septem­ber to Cy­clopark.

The event will see hun­dreds of sup­port­ers of all ages and abil­i­ties tak­ing part in an evening of fun, cel­e­bra­tion and re­mem­brance to help raise funds for el­lenor, which pro­vides vi­tal hospice care to peo­ple of all ages.

Emma Bowles, se­nior events fundraiser, said: “En­tries for the ninth Twi­light Walk are now open and fol­low­ing the huge suc­cess of last year’s walk, we are look­ing to raise even more funds to pro­vide the very best pal­lia­tive and end-of-life care for peo­ple with ter­mi­nal and life-lim­it­ing con­di­tions in Kent.

“Last year’s walk saw a record 782 walk­ers take part and raise £46,268.31 for el­lenor – the most raised from a Twi­light Walk to date. This year we are de­ter­mined to make an even big­ger im­pact, and with your help we could be one step closer”.

The Twi­light Walk is spon­sored for the fourth year by award-win­ning prop­erty devel­oper Esquire De­vel­op­ments, which cre­ates sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ments that com­ple­ment ex­ist­ing com­mu­ni­ties.
