Moonlight Walk Registration


A moonlight walk to raise money for a Preston hospice takes place in June.

St Catherine’s Hospice hosts its annual Moonlight and Memories Walk on Saturday 7 June.

Men, women and children are invited to walk the 13.1 or 8.4 miles in memory of loved ones.

The charity has also been named as the official charity of the Preston Guild City Games.

Lorraine Charlesworth, Director of Income Generation at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re over the moon to have been picked as the official charity of the Preston Guild City Games and very excited that our Moonlight and Memories Walk can be part of this year’s line-up.

“The Games are a wonderful occasion which many local businesses, organisations and community groups really look forward to. It’s fantastic to see people coming together, making use of the sporting facilities we have access to in Central Lancashire, and enjoying a competitive, sporting challenge.

“We hope the addition of the Moonlight and Memories Walk will help open the Games up to even more local people.”

Jimmy Khan, chair of Preston Guild City Games Committee, said: “The Preston Guild City Games Committee is honoured that St Catherine’s Hospice has agreed to become the official charity for the upcoming 2014 Games. St Catherine’s Hospice is a true champion in promoting a healthier lifestyle through the delivery of a variety of health-related fundraising events and campaigns.

“The Moonlight and Memories Walk will complement the action packed weekend of activities that the Preston Guild City Games 2014 will offer and help to ensure that this year we will truly offer something for everyone.”

Registration for the Moonlight walk costs £16 and participants are then invited to raise sponsorship money on top of this.
