A Night to Shine

Join us for our biggest night of the year and shine for Pilgrims Hospices on a walk to remember.

We’re delighted to introduce A Night to Shine, our brand new sponsored 5k, 8k or 10k walk that brings together people from across our east Kent community for one very special night.

On Saturday 30 September 2017, you can shine for Pilgrims in Ashford, Broadstairs and Canterbury.

Enjoy strolling under the stars along our 5km or 10km walking routes (5km and 8km distance options in Broadstairs with the walk starting with a stroll along the beach to Louisa Bay Gap; only 5km distance option at Canterbury).

In each town you’ll enjoy music, a friendly party atmosphere, an energetic warm up and lots more before setting off simultaneously into the evening at 7pm amid a sea of lantern light.

Entry includes t-shirt, lantern, a medal and more. All of your favourite glowing accessories will be available to purchase, too.

It’s your night to shine. We can’t wait for you to join us and help create the biggest walk in east Kent!
