Moonlight walk for a sparkling cause


Islanders will tonight walk miles under the Island’s glittering skies as annual Hospice fundraiser The Moonlight Walk returns for its ninth year.

Started by four friends to finance a fundraising trek challenge, the walk received such support the starlit walk is still going strong into 2017.

Fundraisers set off from St Brelade's Parish Hall at 21:00, for a five or 10-mile hike, featuring music-a-plenty and illuminated fancy dress – the brighter the better.

Facepainters will adorn the registration booth with local band Run for Cover providing the tunes to set them off on their merry way.

“The event is always a really memorable evening , people walk for all different reasons, some in memory of a loved one or just getting together with friends to have a fun evening out whilst raising money for a worthwhile cause,” one of the organisers commented.
