“We’ve put together lots of wonderful stock which has been generously donated to our shops, and developed eye-catching window displays in the run-up to the big night. All of the outfits and accessories are for sale and are perfect for those wanting to stand out at the fundraiser.

“It’s also easier than ever to sign up for the walk, with people able to register in store, at The Mill, or on our website, or by visiting or ringing the hospice.”

She added: “The Moonlight and Memories Walk is very important to St Catherine’s and our amazing army of supporters – it brings hundreds of people together to remember and celebrate their loved ones, as they proudly pound the pavements to help raise vital funds for their local charity.

“Every penny donated goes towards patient care, helping people to have quality of life, to the end of life.”
