Buxton Glow Twilight Walk Returning For Blythe House Hospice

Image Sourced: Glow Twilight Walk

A mass gathering for the fundraising 10K walk is set to happen again after a pause was put into place due to covid

Last year, they held a virtual fundraising walk for those still wishing to take part, where groups of two or more could record themselves walking to raise money for Blythe House Hospice and Helen's Trust. The year before that, the entire event got put on hold. 

However, with restrictions lifted, this year the event is coming back and is planning to be even better. 

It's taking place on May 14, with signing-in and entertainment starting from 19:30 and the walk officially starting at 21:30. As it's taking place at night, participants are encouraged to don neon clothing and accessories. These will also be available to purchase at the event. 

Blythe House Hospice and Helen's Trust work to provide care to people with long-term illnesses and support those during their final months. They also support patients' family and friends, offering bereavement counselling sessions. 

They set up a Hospice at Home scheme in which a person can receive care from the comfort of their own home, with care workers doing visitations all across the Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire and the High Peak. They are currently wanting to employ more care workers to facilitate this scheme, as it has been shown to improve patients' well-fare. 

The Glow Twilight Walk will weave in and around the town, starting at the Pavilion Gardens. Organisers want to see Buxton light up the night, both literally and figuratively, through friends and families' support. 

Registration to take part is open until May 11.

Peak Radio will be attending to show their support, and hope to see you there.
