Starlight Walk is a Huge Success

The event, a 'ladies only' sponsored walk, drew 900 participants and the walkers raised an amazing sum of money, reaching approximately £90,000; This is a substantial contribution towards the considerable cost of running the facility, which amounts to 2.8 million every year. The hospice invests £7,500 per day in the support to and specialist care of those suffering life limiting illnesses and every donation makes a difference to their important work.

BAKO North Western were very happy to provide 1,000 ready-baked teacakes for the event, to feed the hungry participants after their long walk; meaning that all the money raised was donated to the hospice, rather than being used to pay for the event itself. Denise Gee, Event Fundraiser for East Lancashire Hospice comments,"BAKO North Westerns generosity is much appreciated, not only by our staff and volunteers, but especially by all our patients and their loved ones."
