Weston Hospicecare's popular Moonlight Beach Walk is returning this September.

The Uphill-based charity has confirmed the event will take place on September 17 to enable people to 'light up the night' in memory of loved ones, and raise money for the vital support the hospice provides.

The Moonlight Beach Walk sees hundreds of ladies gather on Weston seafront at night to walk 5km or 10km along the beach to raise money for the charity, which supports people with life-limiting conditions.

Weston Hospicecare is thrilled to be able to run the event again this year and registration opens this Friday (July 9). The event is being sponsored by the Grand Pier, where the race will start and finish.

Event manager Grace Dibden said: “We are so pleased to be bringing back the Moonlight Beach Walk in September to raise money for our fantastic hospice.

“It promises to be a wonderful event and we cannot wait to see all our amazing ladies there on the night.

“Finally, a huge thanks to our sponsors, the Grand Pier. It has been a really tough year for the hospitality industry so their support is valued even more.”
