Our team took part in the Star Shine Stroll in Cambridge for the fourth consecutive year, on Saturday 17th May, to raise funds for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity (ARHC).
The stroll is a 10 mile sponsored walk into the night, starting and finishing at Shelford Rugby Club. Yet again there was a great atmosphere and with more walkers than ever taking part this year the streets of Cambridge were awash with Star Shine Stroll t-shirts, pyjamas, feather boas, cow girl hats and tutus – all creating quite a stir. It was a beautiful sunny, warm evening and our team were able to complete the walk in 2 hours 53 minutes.
polkadotfrog were once again a sponsor of event and managed to raise a total of £120 for ARHC.
ARCH supports the work of the Arthur Rank Hospice, which cares for patients who have been diagnosed with life limiting illness, such as cancer. The Charity is solely responsible for funding a range of services, one example of which is Day Therapy and Hospice at Home.
The Charity funds other services that support patients, their family and friends, such as bereavement counselling, complementary therapy, chaplaincy, and much more. Care is provided for patients individual needs on our ‘In-patient unit’ round the clock.
Well done to all the walkers that took part. We are already looking forward to the walk again next year! To see how you can support ARHC please visits their website.
