The Garden House Hospice will be holding their 10th Anniversary Starlight Walk on Saturday 3rd August this year, and this year’s event looks like being an extra special event. The walk will be starting earlier than normal at 7:45 PM to allow younger entrants to take part, and to allow everyone to watch the sunset.
Needless to say everyone is in a great mood, so these really are fun events to be a part of , and the Hospice have asked if we’d be able to cover this event for them so we’re looking for 5 or 6 photographers to help out. We normally meet up about an hour before the start of the walk, get our briefing, and off we go! The hospice will be looking for lots of people shots to capture the event, and hopefully tell some stories about the amazing work they do. And of course if you get your images in promptly there’s a strong possibility they’ll appear in the local paper!
You can see some of our photos from the 2017 event here …https://www.hitchincameraclub.org/2017/10/01/starlight-walk-2017/
And you can learn more about the event itself here…https://www.ghhospicecare.org.uk/support-us/events/detail/sunset-starlight-walk … but I’ve included the following from Hospice’s web site to give you a flavour of the evening.
Along the way, there will be a number of stations to keep your entertained, energised and refreshed through your challenge, with a variety of tasty snacks and hot and cold drinks.
The Sunset Station
Watch the sun set whilst enjoying some music, toasted marshmallows and a soft sunset cocktail.
The Path of Light
Pick up a head torch and follow a 1km section of the legendary Letchworth Greenway, where the path will be lit with lanterns to guide you and your fellow walkers.
The Snack Stop
Enjoy a delicious treat from our snack station gazebo at the half way point.
The Fountain of Lights
Take some photos with your friends and family in front of the fountain at Broadway Gardens, which will be lit up in our Hospice colours.
Enjoy some music, whilst sitting on the steps of the local park, lit with candles, and a shot of artisan hot chocolate from a rickshaw.
