St Luke's Hospice calls for supporters to sign up for fundraising walk around Crewe
23rd Jun 2022 | Local News
A SOUTH Cheshire hospice is calling for more supporters to sign up ahead of their 'Midnight Walk' fundraiser which takes place.
The Midnight Walk, on Saturday, July 2, is St Luke's Hospice's 'flagship' fundraising event and its biggest singular event in support of patient care.
St Luke's Head of Events, Jane Thompson, said: "The amount of money that The Midnight Walk raises is vital for us to continue to offer our services to the local community, and we know that times are difficult for everyone but this year our numbers are very low compared to previous years."
The walk departs from Reaseheath College at 9:30pm where supporters can walk either the six-mile route or an around 11-mile route through Nantwich, Crewe and back.
St Luke's supporters Anneke Lumsden and her son Swayze will be walking this year in memory of her Dad Ivan, who was cared for by the Hospice.
She said: "St Luke's is a great local facility and The Midnight Walk is our way of saying thank you, while honouring Dad and raising vital funds that will help others receive the care and support from the wonderful staff at St Luke's that we as a family did."
