It's almost time to dress up and get ready to glow

High Peak's Blythe House Hospicecare and Helen's Trust are getting ready to hold their second Glow Twilight Walk.

But this year's fundraiser on Saturday, May 15, will be done individually.

Becca Gregory, fundraising and events coordinator, said: “We are so excited to be lighting up the night once again in aid of local hospice care. 

“This time, due to Covid restrictions, participants can get involved with their household or support bubble - and see how many other Glow Twilight walkers they can spot along the way! 

“We hope people will get involved across our community - even much further afield - to support the important work undertaken by our amazing hospice clinical teams and volunteers every single day.” 

Registration is just £10 and includes a T-shirt, glow sticks and face paint - you can sign up online before Tuesday 11 May at https://www.glowtwilightwalk.org.uk/ 

People can sign up to take on their own 10k night-time walk, and help to raise vital funds for palliative and end of life care across the community.  

Blythe House and Helen’s Trust provides free care and support to people across the High Peak, Hope Valley, Derbyshire Dales and North East Derbyshire who are affected by life-limiting illness and bereavement.  

The Hospice at Home service has provided more than 17,000 hours of care to more than 180 local patients in the comfort of their own home since the start of the first national Covid-19 lockdown in March last year.

Sue Boulton, who took part alongside work colleagues in memory of a friend and co-worker in 2019, said: “It was about taking part in something that would make a difference to Blythe House. To help raise that much-needed funding, enabling them to give support, advice and care to everyone in our community that needs it.

"It’s all about fun, dressing-up and, most importantly, being part of an event that paid tribute to those we have lost. I joined my old work pals to remember our dear friend and colleague, Karen Byrne.  

“We can’t all be together for 2021 twilight walk, but we can all join together in spirit.”
