Thousands of people will be hitting the city streets this April in support of St Ann’s.
Our flagship fundraising event, the Manchester Midnight Walk, is back for its twelfth year, and this time there’s a brand new venue for the pre-walk warm up. Participants are invited to join in the fun from 9pm on Friday 27th April 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 St Ann’s 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.”
Interested walkers can sign up to take part in the 10km moonlit stroll now, by visiting the website www.mmwalk.org.uk or calling 0161 498 3631. A special early bird rate is available for keen walkers who book their place early.
Eamonn added: “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.
