They walked five miles of the world famous lights to raise £4,000 for the charity.

Dogs even attended the 5 mile walk!

From the walk’s end point at Starr Gate they were directed to nearby Sharples Hall for free refreshments and a performance by local band The Inbetweeners.

The event was fun for all the family

Dan Hill, chief officer of Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “Huge thanks to everyone who took part. As always, what was our ninth Walk the Lights was a great family night out.

“It was back this year after being lost to Covid restrictions last year and the fantastic sum it raised will go towards projects benefitting cancer patients across our entire Lancashire and South Cumbria territory as the walk itself draws people in from across our entire patch.”
