CHARITY Sue Ryder has teamed up with some of the UK’s most iconic landmarks, including Glamis Castle to host a series of sponsored Starlight Hikes – night-time walks with a difference, throughout September.
By recruiting 10,000 walkers it is hoped that they will raise £1 million to continue to provide long-term compassionate and end-of-life care to people across the UK.
The Starlight Hike at Glamis Castle will wind through the nightime grounds at one of Scotland’s most iconic and historic buildings on Saturday, September 1 at 09.30pm.
Emma Wilson said: “Our findings show that it is all too easy to take things for granted when they are part of your day-to-day life – whether that be your health or the landmark down the road.
“Through the Starlight Hikes we aim to raise £1 million, this would enable us to provide 50,000 hours of in-patient care for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Huntingdon’s disease, motor neurone disease and brain injury. We want to encourage as many people as possible to go to our website and sign up for a chance to see a local landmark in a whole new light, whilst doing something special for charity.”
