Thank you Alex & Zachary

Thank you to brothers Alexander and Zachary who have raised over £2,000 for the hospice.

The twins wanted to raise money for the hospice as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award after the charity cared for their grandad in his final days and raised the money by baking afternoon tea boxes for their local community in Castle Eaton.

Each week saw a different theme with scones, a Victoria Sandwich, cupcakes and even ice cream, all made by the boys before being delivered in person.

They were so well supported that they’re already looking at what they can do next.

Thank you to all our Starlight Walk sponsors

A huge thank you to all those who helped make our Starlight Walk a huge success including Imagine Cruising for their title sponsorship and ongoing support and to Swindon Town Football Club for the brilliant venue and staff where nothing was too much trouble. Thank you also to Akcess for their minibus that powered our marshal team, Andy and the team at Hire a Stage for the stage, Domino’s Pizza for their generous and delicious pizza donation to feed our walkers, Aldi (Drove Road) for the healthy snacks and Intel for the use of the car park. Finally, thank you to Sollertis who did our residents leaflet drop and the team at Arval who spent the day before putting up the route signage.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who makes our fundraising events happen from the staff and volunteers, to all our suppliers and, of course our, participants. Without you, local people wouldn’t get our outstanding care and support and the end of their live so, on their behalf, thank you for being part of this event.
