This year the Starlight Memories Walk is sponsored by Nybble IT and MD Ram Gupta describes what the event means to him and his family:
“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.
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.”
