Walkers are going to light up the streets of Worcester in a charity event in June.

Organised by St Richard's Hospice, the 'Let's Glow' walk will feature participants striding an 11-kilometre path through the city from 10pm on June 22, each wielding glowing LED batons.

The event will kick off and conclude at County Hall.

Event and community fundraising lead at St Richard’s, Sofia Gunster said: "We can’t wait to see everyone glowing for hospice care again this summer!".

She revealed that besides the walk itself, the event will also feature glitter painters, entertainment, sweet treats and a dance-inspired warm-up from Torre Barre.

Ms Gunster said: "Last year’s event was so much fun and such a success, raising £17,639, after costs, for our hospice care.

"We hope to see as many people as possible for a fantastic night of fundraising, helping us continue our care across Worcestershire."

The route designed for the walk takes participants down London Road, then Bath Road, and through St Peter’s towards Whittington before looping back to County Hall.

The event is sponsored by Spa Decorators Limited.

Director of Spa Decorators Limited, Gary Rogers, said: "We are honoured to support St Richard’s, which has over the years given unconditional support to family members of our team.

"We are delighted to sponsor Let’s Glow once again, as a way for us to share our thanks with St Richard’s for all they do in our community.

"We’re really looking forward to Let’s Glow this year, and hope to see lots of people there supporting hospice care!"

Tickets for the event are £20 for adults and £15 for 12 to 17-year-olds, who must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants also get an LED foam baton and a Let’s Glow medal.

The hospice encourages everyone to raise funds as the ticket price only covers the cost of staging the event.
