Hitchin Camera Club has close ties with the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth and this week we were pleased to help cover their Starlight Walk.
Two of our photographers Martin Wooton and Tony Ferns attended the event taking images of the set-up event and the walkers themselves, and we’re pleased to see some of their photos in the Comet including one of Martin’s on the front cover!
According to the Comet…
More than 450 people donned their most colourful fancy dress and glitter face paint for Garden House Hospice Care’s annual Starlight Walk on Sunday – including Hannah Goodwin, who finished first having only recently starting walking again after 10 years in a wheelchair.
The 7½-mile walk started at the Nuffield Health Centre in Letchworth and took walkers through the town and on to parts of the Greenway, before looping back to the finish at the health centre.
This year’s walk saw the addition of new features and a number of themed stations including the path of lights – where walkers dedicated a candle to the memory of a loved one – the fountain of lights, and live entertainment and hot chocolate and marshmallows at Letchworth splash park.
Why not get involved?..
HCC regularly works with the Garden House Hospice on events such as this including their annual Muddy Mayhem events and special one off’s like last year’s Strictly Come Dancing event (read about that here).
If you’d like to come and shoot one of these events simply keep an eye on our website, and let Terry know you’re interested!
