Sponsors Step-up to Support the Beaumond House Starlight Stride

There’s still time to sign up to the Beaumond House Starlight Stride, a 10k memorial walk through Newark on 25th June and now there’s an added incentive, thanks to the generosity of two local sponsors.

The walk is for families and friends who’ve lost a loved one and is being kindly hosted by Newark Rugby Club, where the route will start. It will take “striders” through the historic town centre, past the castle and to Beaumond House where those taking part will be invited to take a moment to remember loved ones. It ends at the rugby club where finishers will receive goodies and hot drinks.

Melissa Gaffney, Beaumond House Fundraising Events Manager says,

“We’re really excited by the event and the route reflects the character and heart of Newark. When we tested our route, we loved how much the historic aesthetic of Newark stood out against a striking sunset. The evening glow of Newark creates a wonderful atmosphere that we hope our walkers will love”.

Andy Smith, from Guardian Angels Carers, has not only signed up to take part but is one of its sponsors. He’s promising to donate an extra £5 every time someone posts a photo with his banner on social media and tags both organisations.

We are pleased to announce Kirkgate Dental Care is also sponsoring the Starlight Stride. They’ll be at the finish area, providing food and a goodie bag.

Jayne Wright will be among those putting their best foot forward,

“I am taking part in this sponsored walk in memory of my lovely Mum Sheila Bullimore who was so lovingly cared for at the hospice before she sadly passed away from terminal cancer in 2013. I also volunteer at the hospice in day therapy and have witnessed what an amazing place it is”.

The walk is open to anyone over the age of 16 (under 18s need to be accompanied by an adult).

Entry is £15 per person and the hospice asks that all participants raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship. If you would like to book a group of 10 or more, please contact Melissa at

Registration will be open between 6:30-7:30pm and the walk starts at 8pm.

Please visit or call 01636 610556 to find out more.
