It was the 13th year of the Midnight Walk, in the 30th anniversary of the hospice, which raised more than £200,000 from the event in 2018.

The hospice costs more than £10million a year to run, has helped more than 30,000 people and their families, and relies heavily on fundraising events such as the Midnight Walk to provide services.
