A Chance To Be A Star - The Directory Group

A chance to be a star!

Children have the chance to show their support for their local hospice by taking part in a special sponsored walk around Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and HM Naval Base.

Starlit Walk takes place on Thursday 27th October from 6.30pm, and the route takes participants past HMS Victory illuminated in all her glory, into the Naval Base not normally open to the public and back to Boathouse No. 7, where all children receive a medal, snack and drink.

For more of a challenge, there is a choice to walk the 1.5 mile route twice. Participants have the opportunity to light a candle in St Ann’s Church in memory of someone special and to make a memory star to place on the memory board.

Teresa Jeffery, In-memory Events Fundraiser at the Rowans Hospice, said: “Children love this event and so do all the volunteers who help. Everyone is invited to dress up in something shiny, sparkly or bright and to make and decorate a mask if they wish. Come along and be a star!”

It costs £5 to register a child and an accompanying adult can walk for free. For more information and to register online, visit www.rowanshospice.co.uk
