A HOSPICE has launched an appeal for people to take part in an annual fundraising event.

The team at Garden House Hospice in Letchworth GC has launched this year’s Starlight Walk and for the first time is welcoming men to take part.

Since the first ladies-only walk in 2009, the hospice has had more and more requests from men wishing to take part in memory of a loved one, and also from younger family members wanting to join in.

This year’s walk on September 7 will have a new start time of 10pm and a new minimum age of 14 years, with under 16s accompanied by an adult walker.

There will be the option of walking six or 10 miles.
