Men, women and children are invited to lace up their trainers for a night-time walk in aid of East Lancashire Hospice. The Starlight Walk will take place on the 10th July 2021.

The much-loved event is back for ONE year only and is sponsored by long-time hospice supporters, Nybble IT - a managed IT provider offering the entire spectrum of IT services, software solutions and audio visual/­digital signage solutions. 

Nybble have supported the hospice for a number of years and were the winners of the 2018 East Lancashire Hospice Corporate Challenge where they raised a staggering £9,613.90 for the hospice.

Ram commented: “We have a deep-rooted connection to the Hospice through the work the hospice does for others.

“As a local business we need to understand, our corporate social respon­sibility and give back to the very backbone of society that has helped us get to where we are today.  East Lancashire Hospice provides valued end of life care to residents and families and needs our support in any way we can provide it. 

He continued: “The hospice carries a very special place in our hearts.  It’s a privilege to be able to be involved with a charity that selflessly provides for others and does so every day.  It deserves our support and our commitment to the hospice is a lifetime one.

"When we were asked to be a sponsor we jumped at the chance.  The pandemic has left huge gaps in the hospice’s finances.  It needs our support more than ever to be able to deliver the all-important end of life care services we all hope we never need to rely on.  After losing a loved one earlier this year, it was an absolute honour to be able to support such a worthy cause and allow other people to walk and remember those that they have lost.  We will be walking for our beloved father, Omprakash Gupta, who lost his life in May 2020.

“The Hospice needs our support.­  Have a heart, we owe it our loved ones, living and departed to support a selfless and beautiful event.  Every step of the Starlight walk is part of an emotional journey, in remembrance and comme­mora­tion of your dearly departed.­  As Sir Captain Thomas said, you’ll never walk alone, by joining this event, we will walk together.”

The Starlight Walk will start and finish at East Lancashire Hospice with registration open from 7pm and the walk setting off at 9pm. All participants will receive a T-shirt which they can write on to display who they are walking in memory of. Walkers will also be given a candle and a memory bag.

Leanne Green, fundraiser for East Lancashire Hospice said, “We are so excited to be adding events back into our fundraising calendar. The Starlight Walk has always been such a huge event for the hospice and our community and what a better time to bring it back than a time we can finally meet with friends and family again. We are extremely grateful of the continued support and dedication from Nybble IT and excited for them to headline sponsor this event.”

“We are encouraging everyone to sign up to the Starlight Walk, whether you have a connection to the hospice or not. Sign up with your friends, family, work colleague and let’s all walk, dance, sing and have a fantastic evening together to raise money for patient care.”
