LOCAL Marie Curie nurse, Valerie Glass, is calling on residents of Ballymena to sign up to the Twilight Walk, which will take place on Friday 28 September at Barnett Demesne, South Belfast, start time 7.30pm.
Previously known as Walk Ten and at a new location for this year, the popular annual event is now in its eighth year, during which time it has raised over £500,000. This money has had a huge impact on people and their families living with a terminal illness across Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the Twilight Walk, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser, Gavin McGucken said: “We’re all very excited about the revamp of Walk Ten. It has always been a fantastic event and it will now be bigger and better. Twilight Walk is a great excuse to get together with friends, family or colleagues for a beautiful 7K walk around Barnett Demesne, taking in Shaws Bridge towpath and Lock Keepers Cottage.”
“Participants can expect much more than just a walk – there will be a festival atmosphere with music, entertainment and finishing things off with a spectacular fireworks display.”
