Thank you for everyone who joined our

Starlight Walk

and raised funds with every colourful step

Well done to over 400 of you who took part in our 15th Starlight Walk bringing colour and fun to Swindon on Saturday 24 June 2023.

It was wonderful to see so many of you embracing this year’s festival fever theme with some of your furry friends stealing the show as you brightened the streets of Swindon, raising money to support vital care for those in the local area living with a terminal illness.

Thank you to everyone involved in helping to make it a night to remember including:

  • Akcess and their community action team who loaned us a minibus for our lead marshal to help keep an eye on our walkers and make sure they are safe
  • Andy at Hire a Stage Swindon for providing our stage and sound system
  • Karen Hyde for her brilliant warm up
  • Aldi on Drove Road who donated all our healthy snacks and several of our local Co-op’s who rallied together to provide items for our catering team
  • Swindon Town Football Club who sponsored the venue
  • Sollertis for doing the leaflet drop to the houses on the route
  • Arval UK for putting up our signage
  • Kim Duffy for cutting out over 400 lanterns for our twinkling remembrance garden

As always, an enormous thank you to our staff and volunteers who give their time, help and expertise to make sure Starlight Walk went smoothly and safely, our marshals and lead marshal Colin Roberts, our registration team who get stuck in with lots of jobs, our catering team, merchandise team and information desk team.

Finally, thank you to our community who came out to cheer on and to all our walkers for gritting your teeth and powering on in your fabulous outfits. Your support and fundraising ensure Prospect Hospice can continue to deliver free expert clinical and emotional support to our patients and their families. We simply couldn’t do it without you.

This event was proudly supported by Imagine Cruising.
