We'd like to offer a huge thank you to our long-term corporate supporters the Eric Wright Group for returning for 2022 to sponsor our annual Walk in the Dark!
This year's event, which is returning to its regular April date (Saturday the 23rd this year) following two years of restrictions, is our 14th annual fundraising walk from Chorley General to Royal Preston.
Over the years, thousands of people have walked the approximately 11-mile route to collectively raise more than £300,000 for our projects, which have benefitted cancer patients cared for in NHS hospitals throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria. With Eric Wright's corporate donation, which covers event costs, we can make sure that the whole £15 entry fee and any sponsorship raised by our walkers comes to the charity to support these life-changing projects.
Jeremy Hartley, Group Managing Director of Eric Wright Group, said: “We are delighted once again to be involved in Walk in the Dark. As a local company, we have always recognised Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s hugely valuable work in supporting those in treatment both at Rosemere Cancer Centre and all of our region’s hospital cancer units. We send all the participants our best wishes as they raise money for this excellent cause.”
Thank you - your continued support is helping us make such a difference for local cancer care
