Shine Bright

Walk | Celebrate | Remember

Join us on Saturday 7th October at the beautiful Bluebell Vineyard to walk a woodland trail in the stunning Sussex countryside, in memory and celebration of those special to you.

The trail will be lit up, with entertainers along the route, and refreshments available to enjoy this special night. We’re all set for a magical evening and would love you to join us in support of St Peter & St James Hospice.

Actress Zoe will be leading the walk and tells us why she is supporting the Hospice:

“I thought it would be scary because a lot of hospitals are scary places… But when you walk in, it’s so bright and lovely here and everyone is so welcoming, you feel that. It sounds odd but after all my Mum went through with her treatment, I have nothing but good memories of her being here.

I will be walking for my Mum and Dad and hoping they are proud of me and the good I’m trying to achieve in raising awareness of hospice care.”
