Ashgate Hospicecare’s Markovitz Sparkle Night Walk is back with a bang! This year it will be held on Saturday 6th July starting at 10pm. Take full advantage of the early bird offer of only £10 ending on Friday 22nd March at midnight.
Chesterfield’s biggest fundraising event keeps growing year on year and, last year, saw over 2,500 people come together to raise over £200,000 for those in need of hospice care.
Ebony and Sam, from Fresh Ideas on Chatsworth Road, spoke to the team at Ashgate Hospicecare about why they are walking the Markovitz Sparkle Night Walk. They said: “We’ve been walking the Sparkle Night Walk for four years and the atmosphere is always very happy, especially near the main stage when everybody’s lining up and they’re all jolly and eager to get going.
Whether you’re a business or a group of friends, just sign up! Absolutely anybody can do the Sparkle Night Walk – no excuses!”
Jack Wood, Events Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare, said “This year’s Markovitz Sparkle Night Walk promises to be the best one yet. There is so much more going on this year and we can’t wait to surprise you with what we have in store.
Thousands of walkers donned their pink t-shirts and bunny ears last year and raised vital funds for Ashgate Hospicecare. It was a night to remember. We can’t wait to see those familiar faces and new ones this year!”
Thousands of local people gave fantastic feedback on last year’s event. Eileen Lowe, from Matlock in Derbyshire, said, “What an amazing night. Walking down the bypass was surreal, the atmosphere was electric. Thanks to all the volunteers & public who cheered us on. Such a worthwhile cause!”
Maggie Harrison, from Alfreton in Derbyshire, said, “I had never done the night walk before but now I have made it an annual event in my calendar. (Excuse the pun but) it was a very moving experience. Beautiful!”
