Walkers will put their best feet forward to the beat

Barnstaple DJ joins Children’s Hospice South West Starpath Memory Walk

A DJ will be helping charity walkers on the annual Children’s Hospice South West Starpath Memory Walk put their best feet forward this October.

Mark Membury from Barnstaple will be going the extra mile on the night of Saturday, October 1 as friends, families and supporters of the hospice are invited to walk under the stars from Barnstaple to Fremington to remember and celebrate those important to them, in memory or in honour of a loved one.

Mark heard the hospice was looking for a DJ and was happy to help out:

“I have been a supporter of CHSW for a number of years and helped out at previous Starpath Memory Walks,” he said.

“I will bring my DJing skills to the event and get the crowds warmed up before they set off. I have seen first hand the good work Children’s Hospice South West does locally and I am more than happy to help in whatever way I can.”

The event is a five or eight mile walk along the Tarka Trail that brings together groups of family and friends to raise funds for a good cause and usually in memory of someone special.

The Starpath walk is unique in that it encourages participation from all age groups, so families, individuals, mums, dads, brothers, sisters, even grandparents are all welcome to walk in honour of someone they love.

“It is an uplifting evening of memories for walkers, volunteers and everyone associated with the occasion,” said Emma Puckey, head of fundraising at Little Bridge House.

“Whatever your reasons for taking part, it’s because of such support we are able to continue the vital work we do for life-limited children and their families. Thank-you for making a difference.”
