Strictly Starlight Walk raises over £36,000

Blackburn streets were illuminated with flashing headgear and sparkling outfits on Saturday as around 450 put on their walking boots for the annual Starlight Walk.

The rain held off while the ladies and girls warmed up with some dance inspired mini workouts and walking conditions were perfect for the 5 or 8 miile walk to raise funds for patient care.

On the night over £36,500 was pledged in sponsorship.

Many ladies attached message cards to their backs showing everyone who they were walking for, some in memory, others in celebrations.
