MARY Stevens Hospice in Stourbridge is celebrating its 30th anniversary year by inviting people to take part in a twilight walk to remember loved ones.

The Light The Night Walk has been organised by hospice staff and the 5k sponsored walk will take place on Friday October 8 at dusk.

Supporters are invited to sparkle in their best light up and glow in the dark clobber and set out on a twilight walk from Hagley Cricket Club to the hospice and back.

The walk has been organised so members of the community can unite in memory of loved ones and raise funds for the hospice.

Adults, children and dogs can all take part in the event, with t-shirts, light up accessories and a doggy good bag all being offered to supporters once registration is complete.

As well as supporting the hospice through signing up to take part in the walk, supporters are invited to raise sponsorship to help the hospice ensure it can continue to care for members of the community in their greatest time of need.

James Totney, community and events fundraiser at the hospice, said: “We absolutely love holding events for our community so it’s been really tough to not be able to host these and see our community come together in support of the hospice.

"We can’t wait to light up the night on October 8.”

People can sign up for the Light The Night Walk while places are on an early bird offer, until Friday May 21.

The registration fee covers the cost of running the event and details of registration can be found on the hospice website
