Local hospice encourages more people to sign up for this year’s ‘Blundells Sparkle Night Walk’

Ashgate Hospicecare is proud to announce that over 1800 local people have signed up for this year’s ‘Blundells Sparkle Night Walk’ already.

The event, which raised a phenomenal £127,000 for the Chesterfield-based hospice in 2015 will start at the Proact Stadium on Saturday 2nd July and will follow the same 10k circular route as last year. With the support of their main event sponsor, Blundells Estate and Lettings Agents, the hospice is pulling out all the stops to try and get as many people registered before the closing date on the 28th of June.

Lucy Nickson, CEO of Ashgate Hospicecare says ‘We are really excited about the Blundells Sparkle Night Walk. Last year was fantastic. We couldn’t believe how much we achieved and we are even more ambitious this year. The walk is so important because the hospice is actually only able to exist because of the generosity of the people of North Derbyshire. The money raised at events like this is absolutely critical to us delivering care.’

‘My plea to everybody who cares about Ashgate Hospicecare as their local hospice is to take part, raise some money and make sure we can keep giving the fantastic care that we do to people in North Derbyshire year after year.’

This year will host numerous forms of entertainment including fireworks, dancers and the ever so special UV tunnel.

Events Fundraiser, Charlotte Gratton, says It’s amazing to see such excitement within the local community. We want everyone to have a fabulous time whilst raising money for patients and their families in North Derbyshire.

If you’d like to make a difference and help patients with life-limiting illnesses whilst enjoying a fabulous evening of entertainment, sign up now to Blundell’s Sparkle Night Walk 2016!
