Moonlit walk to remember a loved one with Heart of Kent Hospice

Get together with friends and family on Saturday 19th September and join Heart of Kent Hospice for an 8 mile sponsored walk under the stars to remember a loved one and raise vital funds for the charity.

The Hospice’s Moonlit Walk is back by popular demand and this year there is a new circular route which starts and finishes in front of Preston Hall in Aylesford. This evening hike will start at 9pm with a welcome halfway break at the Hospice’s charity shop in West Malling.

Each walker will receive a free special edition Moonlit Walk 2015 t-shirts to wear on the night, which have been funded by Mercury Holidays. Tutus, boas, along with flashing bunny ears will also be available for sale at the event. The Moonlit Walk is not just for ladies only, men are also welcome to take part or help by marshalling and cheering the walkers along the route.

A wall of memories will also be created on the night where photos and personal messages can be posted to celebrate the life of friends and loved ones.

The event is being sponsored by residential-led developers Weston Homes, which is currently restoring the Grade II listed Victorian mansion at Preston Hall into luxury apartments.

Sarah Pugh, Chief Executive for Heart of Kent Hospice said: “The Moonlit Walk is a great opportunity for the local community to come together for a night time walk to remember a loved one whilst raising money to provide care for local families who need our services in the future. Whether you have been personally touched by the Hospice, want to get fit or just want to do something different, the Moonlit Walk promises to be a great night out for all ages. We are really grateful to Weston Homes for sponsoring this event and Mercury Holidays for funding the special edition t-shirts.”

Bob Weston, CEO at Weston Homes commented: “The moonlit walk will commence at our flagship development, Preston Hall in Aylesford, so it seemed apt that Weston Homes were the headline Sponsor for the event. The Hospice do great work in providing care for local residents living in Aylesford and we are proud to be able to show our support to this great cause.”

Sarah Butcher, Marketing Director for Mercury Holidays said: “As our charity of the year, we are really pleased to be supporting Heart of Kent Hospice’s Moonlit Walk by funding the special edition t-shirts. Over the last few years, we have raised and donated over £10,000 for the Hospice and have a team taking part in the Moonlit Walk in September.”
