A dedicated fundraiser is ready to take part in one of the most exciting fundraising events in aid of St Johns Hospice, Moggerhanger.

Pamela Wallace is encouraging people to join her and sign up to take part in the night hike that will see hundreds of people walking together under the stars.

The St John’s Starlight Hike will take place on Saturday, September 13 starting at 10pm.

Pamela said: “This will be my sixth year taking part in the hike and I can not urge people enough to get involved.

“The care at St John’s is second to none and the money raised means that many more of our family and friends will be given this service absolutely free.”

Sue Ryder is inviting local people to join this year’s event to help raise vital funds for the hospice.

£100 could pay for a nurse for a day, providing medical and emotional support to someone living with an incurable illness.

Fay Boissieux, Regional Fundraiser at St John’s, added: “The Starlight Hike is going to be our biggest fundraising event this year and it is going to be really exciting to see so many people walking under the stars through some of the most beautiful settings.

“We are hoping to raise over £100,000 for the hospice and see more than 1,500 people participating including women, children and men.

“This year, it will cost £2.4million to run St John’s Hospice so sponsorship raised will be greatly appreciated.”
