Stateside Sponsors Bolton Hospice Midnight Memories Walk 2017

4th July 2017 ‹ Back to listing

Bolton Hospice held their special 25th Anniversary year Midnight Memories Walk on Saturday 17th June and walkers gathered together to walk in memory of their loved ones and to raise much needed funds for the hospice. Stateside Foods were very proud to be the sponsor of the event for the third year running.

Walkers were each given a hand-held lantern that represented why they were taking part. Pink lanterns were given to those walking in memory of a loved one, blue to supporters of Bolton Hospice, and yellow the survivors of life threatening illnesses. At midnight the walkers lit up the sky with the lanterns and shared a special minute’s silence to remember their lost loved ones.

There were over 1200 people taking part in the walk this year and the final amount pledged was an amazing £104,438.18 – this is a fantastic effort and we are honoured to have been a part of it.
