The Moonlight Walk 2009 has opened its registration process and already 1,500 women have signed up to raise money for St Catherine’s Hospice.


The 2008 event saw 2,500 ladies walking the streets of Preston and around it (a total of 13.1 miles) at night time in a great community event.

The event raised £257,000 for the hospice and the money was spent on improved services for those at the Hospice.

Some of the messages posted on the Moonlight Walk website from those who took part included Alison Dick, from Preston:

Hi,Completed the walk on Saturday 7th june 2008. It took about 4hours and although it left me feeling a little tired, it has given me a great sense of achievement and I feel really proud of myself and the other ladies who did it. Well done everyone!! See you next year.

and Louise Butterworth from Lostock Hall said:

well done to everyone who took part in the moonlight walk last sat/sun. what a great night, i walked with my 2 fab friends and saw lots of other people i knew walking too. it was such fun, tough on the feet at times but well worth it knowing the money raised was going to such a super place.i really, really enjoyed it and proudly wearing my t-shirt on monday(today) to show off, i am still buzzing from the achievement.Thank you also to all the stewards who were very encouraging at some of the points we passed, and also to all the ladies who encouragingly waved as they passed us on their way home, it spurred us on. well done to all. louise.

So if you’re female and want to do something for charity, head on over and register to take part.
