Queenscourt Hospice are looking for participants and volunteers for their annual Star Trekk Event
2010 sees the fourth annual Star Trekk Ladies' Walk, which is now established as Queenscourt's flagship fundraiser: the single biggest event in the hospice calendar, involving the most supporters and raising the most money for patient care.
We want to make it the best yet. Already groups of ladies are joining up and those who have taken part before are getting their friends and family involved.
The 7 mile walk takes place on Friday 14th May. Walkers register at the Eco Centre from 8pm, where there is a live band, warm-up, refreshments and the opportunity to buy Star Trekk merchandise before setting off at 10.30pm. The walk will take you via the Promenade, Our team of volunteers coordinate the registration and allocation of t-shirts, see you safely across all the junctions and cheer you on as you go.
This year we are being supported by local firms Plantec and First Legal who are providing sponsorship for the event, as well as Sefton Council, Brough's Butchers, Morrisons, Starbucks, Marshside Methodist Church and The White House at the Municipal Golf Club, who will make sure our walkers are safe and fed and watered along the way.
You probably know someone who has been looked after by Queenscourt Hospice. It is an extraordinary place. We are committed to helping patients to live with their illness, at whatever stage, and doing our best to improve their quality of life, either at home or in the hospice. We could not do this without you.
Don't spend a lot of time thinking about it - get signed up! You won't regret it - you will have a great night and you will be supporting a fantastic charity. As one supporter said, "You cannot beat the feeling at 10.00pm on a wet Friday night, looking out over a sea of ladies all wearing flashing pink bunny ears, singing Walking on Sunshine, with one common purpose - they are all going that extra mile for Queenscourt."
If you don't fancy doing the walk, but you would like to help out with stewarding, call the fundraising team and get your name on the list.
