More than 550 walkers helped light up the night sky to raise much-needed funds for charity on Friday 9 September.

Glow sticks, face paint and fairy lights were in order for Lindsey Lodge Hospice & Healthcare’s 10 and 5-mile Glow Walk, which took place during its 30th birthday year.

Lindsey Lodge Deputy Chief Executive Tom Moody said: “We’re absolutely delighted with how many people supported this year’s event!

“We hoped that this would be our biggest and best Glow Walk yet to help us celebrate 30 years of Lindsey Lodge, and the local community came together and helped us achieve this.

“The atmosphere was fantastic, seeing all of our supporters dressed up ready to glow, while also paying touching tributes to their loved one with our Memory Mile. All of the early signs are that we’re on track to raise our target of £40,000 for the event – so a massive thanks to everyone who took part!”

Musician Connor Hanly, along with Rock’Em Pop’Em Discos provided the right beats to help build the energy on the night, and in true Glow Walk tradition, local Zumba teacher Penny Goulding got everyone limbered up at the start line, before Lindsey Lodge Chief Executive Karen Griffiths, who was helped by hospice patients, officially started the 2022 event. Lindsey Lodge mascot Lindsey Bear also made a special appearance to offer his support.

Tom said: “We are so grateful to everyone who made the night such a success –from the entertainers to the patients, staff and volunteers – and of course all of the amazing Glow Walkers!”

He added: “The demand for our services is extremely high and we’re now supporting more people than ever in our 30 year history, so every penny raised from this event will ensure we continue to provide our specialist care to North Lincolnshire patients and families.”
