Workmates at a Lancashire estate agency put their best feet forward to take part in a charity fundraising walk during the night.
Nine colleagues from Keenans Estate Agency, the East Lancashire family business with offices in Clitheroe, Hyndburn, Rossendale and Greater Manchester, joined the recent women-only East Lancashire Hospice Starlight Walk. Plus, Keenans gave the event an added boost by sponsoring the medals handed out to all finishers.
The Starlight Walk raises money for East Lancashire Hospice, which is marking its 30th anniversary year of caring for patients. The event saw women from all over East Lancashire embark on a nocturnal walk of four or eight miles, setting off from the DW Soccerdome on Haslingden Road, Guide, at 10 pm.
The theme for this year’s walk was Strictly Come Dancing, with participants encouraged to dust off their sequins and glitter for the occasion.
Speaking befre the walk, Dannielle from Keenans Estate Agents said: “Our little team will be parading around in tiaras and tutus so we won’t be easily missed! We can’t wait to step out and raise as much as we can for the hospice.”
Sharon Crymble, from East Lancashire Hospice, said: “The fact Keenans sponsored the medals made a huge difference to the event – by helping us to cover our costs it means more of the money raised by our walkers can go towards caring for our patients.”
