walk under the stars for loved ones this October

National healthcare charity Sue Ryder is calling on Gloucestershire residents to pull on their trainers this October for a special 10k walk under the stars to celebrate the memory of loved ones.

Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Cheltenham, sponsored by Capita, will take place on the evening of Saturday 15th October, starting at St Edward’s Preparatory School in Charlton Kings and following a route around Cheltenham.

And it is hoped that hundreds of individuals, families and friends from the local community will come together to remember and pay tribute to loved ones who have died, raise funds and help Sue Ryder create a future where everyone has access to expert compassionate care and support at the end of their life or following a bereavement.

Registration begins at 7pm and participants will be able to soak up live music from the award-winning Rock Choir and Got 2 Sing, before enjoying a fun disco style warm-up from Clubbercise. At 9pm walkers sporting fancy dress, flashing headwear and neon face paint will set out on a 10k route around the town of Cheltenham.

Walkers will have the opportunity to pass through the tranquil grounds of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, softly lit with festoon lights, and place a star in honour of someone special to them.

Last year Sue Ryder provided over 830,000 hours of care to thousands of families across the country, including from its Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice in Cheltenham. 

Matt Reay, Community Fundraising Manager at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, said: “We really hope everyone will be able to join us at Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Cheltenham, which is shaping up to be a fantastic evening of celebration and remembrance under the stars.

“Our specialist teams make all the difference at the end of someone’s life or following a bereavement, and by taking part in Sue Ryder Starlight Hike Cheltenham you’ll be helping Sue Ryder to provide even more expert and compassionate care. The Sue Ryder teams work tirelessly to ensure that our patient’s symptoms and pain are managed so that the end of people’s lives can instead be filled with friendship, family and love in those final moments together.

“We’d like to extend our thanks to Capita for sponsoring this event. We are extremely grateful for their ongoing support.”

Joanna Wynn, Communications Manager at Capita, said: “Sue Ryder is a charity that is very close to our hearts. Some of our colleagues and customers have experienced its care first-hand and seen how it supports patients and their loved ones through the most difficult times of their lives. This is the fifth year we have sponsored Starlight Hike, and we are delighted that our support will help to ensure the funds raised on the night can go directly to Sue Ryder’s vital care and support.”
