Hundreds of ladies are expected to take part in the third St David’s Hospice ladies only Moonlight Memories Walk on Saturday 22nd June.
Last year, the event raised in excess of £25,000 for the local hospice, which provides end of life care to those living with advanced illnesses in Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.
The 10km night time walk starts (10 pm) and finishes at Ysgol John Bright, Llandudno and is a great challenge to take part in with little experience required. For many, it’s the emotional impact of raising funds in memory of a loved one, which makes participating in the walk a very fitting tribute and spurs walkers to the finish line.
To commemorate loved ones, a Moonlight Memories Garden will be lit up at the Hospice along with the route, and walkers will be welcomed to leave a message on the memories tree. All messages are treasured safely in a memories book which is kept at the Hospice chapel after the event.
Head of Fundraising, Margaret Hollings said:
“The Moonlight Memories Walk is very much about ladies coming together for a big night out and to remember loved ones. As the sun sets over the Llandudno Promenade, the walk takes place under the stars with only the glimmer of bunny ears, glow bracelets and face paints.
“You don’t need to be an experienced walker in order to take part and there is no pressure on finishing within a certain time. The walk is ideal for groups of friends, colleagues and family wanting to feel good and make a difference”.
Registration is open now. Entry is £15 per person and participants must be aged 8 or over. The entry fee includes a t-shirt, half-way refreshments and a medal on completion as well as a special butterfly tag to write messages on and place in the Moonlight Memories garden on the night.
