Ready, steady, glow for Shakespeare Hospice

IT WAS a case of ready, steady, glow at the weekend as the streets of Stratford were lit up in aid of Shakespeare Hospice.

Leg warmers, tutus and glowsticks were in abundance on Saturday (June 4) as hundreds put their best foot forward for the charity’s Glow Walk.

After limbering up courtesy of a disco at the Welcombe Hotel, fund-raisers completed either a five or 10km route around the town.

It is hoped the event will raise around £14,000 for the Shottery-based hospice, which provides support and advice to patients, carers and family members affected by life-limiting illness.

Actor David Bradley, who is president of The Shakespeare Hospice and who took part in the event, said: “I pop in occasionally but having to work away means I don’t get to be involved as much as I would like so it’s great to take part and show my support.

“I’ve done the 5K this year and I regard it as a warm up to next year’s 10K. I’ll pass on wearing a tutu – those days are over for me – but I’ll gladly wave a glow stick around!”
