Volunteers needed for Chester Sparkle Night Walk

Local residents are being encouraged to sign up as a volunteer for the Chester Sparkle Night Walk which will take place on Friday 15th June, in aid of Hospice of the Good Shepherd

More than 75 volunteers are needed to marshall the route and help with setting up the event to ensure that all participants can take part safely.

Justin Caroe, Hospice Community Fundraiser, said: “Our Chester Sparkle Night Walk is reliant on an army of enthusiastic volunteers to be a success. Their presence is paramount to keeping it running smoothly and safely.”

The Chester Sparkle Night Walk starts at Grosvenor Park and will see hundreds of walkers ‘sparkle’ under the stars. The 5km circular route through Chester City Centre passes iconic buildings and locations along the way including: Chester Cathedral, Eastgate Clock,Chester Racecourse and finishes within the Amphitheatre.

Justin added: “The Hospice relies on donations for the majority of its income, so events like the Chester Sparkle Night Walk are a vital way of raising funds. There is always a fantastic atmosphere, so I’d encourage everyone to come along and be part of an incredible event that helps support the only adult hospice in Chester.”

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd doesn’t make a charge to patients for using the services but it does cost £11,000 per day for the hospice to provide the necessary care and support.

Volunteers will need to be on-site from 7pm until around 1am depending on the role and refreshments will be provided. If you would like to volunteer your help please email fundraising@hospicegs.com or call 01244 851 811. If you are interested in taking part in the event please sign up here
