A North Lincolnshire charity is inviting walkers to ‘glow crazy’ and support its annual sponsored walkathon on Friday 8th September.

Registration is now open for Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare’s iconic Glow Walk, which has raised over £615k in funds for the charity over the years.

Lindsey Lodge Head of Fundraising Kirsty Walker said: “Our Glow Walk is one of the best loved mass participation events in our calendar, and last year saw a record number of over 550 walkers taking part, raising over £46k!

“As well as our traditional 10-mile route, we’re offering a shorter five-mile route again this year, to encourage as many people as possible to get involved and experience the very special atmosphere that the Glow Walk evening brings.”

As well as pre-event music and a fun warm up, glow walkers are encouraged to literally light up the night with their outfits and accessories, whilst raising sponsorship to provide the much-needed funds Lindsey Lodge needs to continue to provide its care.

Kirsty added: “For the last mile of the walk we are offering our walkers the option to walk with a memory lantern to remember their loved one.

Entry for the Glow Walk costs £15.00 per person, which is discounted to £12.50 per person for teams of over five people. For more information visit, email or phone 01724 270835.
