A walk under the stars

Starlight Hike Cheltenham, sponsored by Capita, returns on Saturday 19th October at 8pm. Join hundreds of walkers for a great night out and walk under the stars with family and friends to celebrate a loved one.

You'll have plenty of time to soak up live music from the amazing i-Sing as well as a fun Clubbercise warm up before heading out on your 10k walk. Walkers will have the opportunity to pass through the beautifully lit tranquil grounds of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice and dedicate a star in memory of those special to them.

Together we can ensure no one has to face dying or grief alone

Last year over 8,700 people across the country were cared for by Sue Ryder’s hospice teams, including from our Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice or in their own homes in the community.

Our dedicated Sue Ryder Nurses manage patients' pain and symptoms, enabling them to spend their final days surrounded by family and friends.

By taking part in Sue Ryder Starlight Hike you’re helping ensure people approaching the end of their life or grieving can access the right support at the right time. There is no one size fits all when it comes to how we cope and the help we need, but together we can ensure, no one has to face dying or grief alone.

Fundraise through JustGiving

Set up a JustGiving page to start fundraising for Sue Ryder and help us to continue providing our care. You can also share your page with family or friends!
