Starlight Stroll is a walk to remember

Would you like to lay a lantern in memory of a loved one? Then why not join us at our flagship fundraising event, Starlight Stroll, sponsored by Clarke Roofing Southern Ltd.

The five-mile sponsored walk is taking place along the prom in Eastbourne on Saturday 9th September for the ninth year and is the ideal opportunity to walk beside the sea and under the stars while remembering a loved one.

Starting at Princes Park, the walk follows a route along the prom to the Italian Gardens near Holywell. This is where you can lay a lantern to remember someone who is no longer with us, or simply reflect on the work of the hospice. The walk concludes with a stroll back to Princes Park to collect your medal and enjoy a celebratory drink and bite to eat.

Senior Events Fundraiser, Beth Hillier, said: ‘Everyone is welcome to come along and remember a loved one at Starlight Stroll– it’s not just for people who have a link with the hospice. However, lots of participants do take part to say thank you to us for touching their lives in some way, whether that’s through helping them or their loved one in our Inpatient Unit or out in the community.’

Tickets for the event cost £14 per person until 31st July; after that, the price will increase to £18 per person. Under 5s are free. Every walker will receive a paper lantern to decorate, a Starlight Stroll t-shirt and a commemorative medal. Register here: www.stwhospice.org/event/starlight-stroll-2023/

Clarke Roofing are delighted to be the headline sponsor for the annual Starlight Stroll run by St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

As an Eastbourne-based family-owned business we are committed to supporting this wonderful hospice in any way we can and last year held a charity golf day raising £11,000.

We have all been affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses in some way and St Wilfrid’s is close to all our hearts.
