Woodlands Hospice ‘Light up the Night’ – Let’s Glow is a new evening walk in the hospice fundraising calendar. It’s a chance to get together with family and friends and have fun, whilst raising money to care for our patients and their families. The walk takes place on Saturday 13th October and begins at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre, heading along the coastline before taking you around the leafy streets of Crosby and Waterloo. The walk finishes back at the Lakeside Centre where there will be hot food and refreshments waiting, along with a medal and big thank you from us all.

There is a 5k and 10k option and, as there are prizes for brightest dressed, we are encouraging you to dress up as brightly as possible. Every participant gets a free Light up the Night t-shirt to wear for the walk and accessories will be available to buy on the night. Fundraising is essential to keep Woodlands Hospice services running. To continue to provide our services free of charge we need to raise more than £3,500 every day and we can only do this with your help. We are looking to raise a total of £30,000 from this event so every little counts and there will also be a prize for the most sponsorship raised.

One of our supporters Marie Foster shares why she has decided to support our ‘Light up the Night’ Walk. “I took part in the moonlight walk last year along with a group of friends to raise funds while my mum was a patient at the hospice. We decided to take part as my mum took great comfort from Woodlands and the people she met while attending. Great friends were made during her time at the hospice helping her to come to terms with her illness and communicate her feelings to us without feeling scared to talk about it. Mum was so proud that we had done this for a place that she held so close to her heart.

This year we are doing the ‘Light up the Night’ – Let’s Glow in memory of my mum who sadly passed away in November 2017. We will be joined by friends and family who have seen throughout mum’s care what Woodlands provided to her during her illness and to us as a family since. We can't thank Woodlands enough and I know mum would be over the moon that we are continuing to fundraise in her memory. Woodlands is such an amazing place we are so lucky to have on our doorstep and I urge as many people as possible to join me in helping patients and families just like mine and to beat the target of raising £30,000 through the walk”.
