Walkers are being asked to put their best foot forward for the The Prince of Wales Hospice Sparkle Twilight Walk next month.

The sponsored event will take people on a 5k or 10k route through Castleford and the surrounding areas at night.

Walkers will also be provided with a free t-shirt, drink and lunch, and there will be entertainment before and after the walk and prizes for the best dress participant.

The themed event set off from the Glass Houghton Centre for Healthy Living at 9pm on September 17.

It is hoped the walk will raise more than £7,000 for the hospice, which provides vital end of life care and support to patients and their families living with life limiting illnesses.

Michelle Foulks, events fundraising co-ordinator, said: “Join us for a celebration under the stars and take on our themed sponsored walk.

“Your entry and sponsorship will help us care for local people and support their families too.”

The walk is being sponsored by Simply Health and supported by McDonald’s in Castleford.
