Thousands of people will be hitting the city streets this April for the St Ann’s Hospice Manchester Midnight Walk.
The flagship fundraising event is back for its 12fth year and this time there’s a brand new venue for the pre-walk warm up for the 10km walk around the streets of Manchester city centre – participants are invited to join in the fun from 9pm on Friday, April 27, at Manchester Cathedral.
The event has pulled in the crowds every year since it began, creating a unique late-night party atmosphere and raising over £2 million for the hospice in that time.
Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive from St Ann’s, said: “Last year’s walk was fantastic, with thousands of people joining in to raise an amazing amount for the hospice.
“We’re really excited for this year’s event, and can’t wait for everyone to see what we have planned for the evening in this iconic Manchester venue
“As one of the oldest adult hospices in the country, we are constantly looking at new ways to raise the £16,000 a day we need to keep our hospice doors open.
“We’re really fortunate that Mancunians and Salfordians alike rally around in support of our patients, and the Manchester Midnight Walk is a perfect example of that.
“It’s amazing to see so many people out in force passing local landmarks to raise money for local people.”
Many walkers take part in memory of lost loved ones, whilst others join in simply for a night of fun and fundraising.
