More than 600 people are set to walk in memory of their loved ones and enjoy a host of attractions at St Catherine’s Hospice’s biggest annual fundraiser.

The Moonlight and Memories Walk starts in the hospice grounds on the evening of Saturday 3 June, with dancing, face painting, performances from World Wise Samba, a caricaturist, memory tree and more.

St Catherine’s cares for patients and families across Chorley, Preston and South Ribble who are affected by life-shortening conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure.

Everyone is invited to join the meaningful 6-mile or 8-mile sponsored walk in honour of special people, before returning to The Mill café in St Catherine’s Park for a well-deserved breakfast sandwich.

Emma Jacovelli, head of community engagement at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re inviting families, friends, colleagues and neighbours to come together for this very special night to remember.

“It’s a chance to share stories about those who are much-loved and dearly missed, to honour their memories and celebrate their lives. It’s also an opportunity to support our charity and raise vital funds for our end-of-life care and the bereavement support St Catherine’s provides to local people.”
