Staff at Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech shine a light on charity fundraiser
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity's Star Shine Walk will still take place this year… becoming a virtual event for the first time ever! This new version of the popular memory walk, invites participants to accumulate 20,000 steps between tomorrow (Saturday), and June 6.
Now in its twelfth year the walk usually brings together 500 walkers, many of whom choose to walk in memory of someone they love. The well-loved event is historically one of the Hospice’s biggest fundraisers, having raised over £375,000 during its eleven-year history – thanks to the enthusiastic sponsorship efforts of the walkers who take part.
Today (Friday) staff at the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech, which is run by Arthur Rank, helped officially launch this year's event by taking part in a social distancing walk around the town park.
