FUND-RAISERS, volunteers and families gathered together on Barnstaple Square on Friday to officially launch the charity's brand new annual event, taking place this September.
Organisers hope the Starpath Memory Walk on Saturday, September 26 will raise �30,000, enough to fund a specialist nurse at Little Bridge House, the charity's children's hospice in Fremington, for one year.
Emma Puckey, the hospice's head of fundraising, said: "We are hoping to have at least 300 people walking together on this five mile sponsored walk from Barnstaple Square to our very special children's hospice, Little Bridge House, celebrating precious memories of loved ones with every step."
The event will begin with an uplifting remembering service where people will have the chance to celebrate their memories. Later, they will be able to place them on a star and plant them in the hospice gardens.
