Following the success of last year’s event, Tata Chemicals Europe (TCE) has agreed to sponsor St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice’s Twilight Walk. The 10-kilometre torchlit walk through Delamere Forest will take place on the 23rd of March and aims to raise invaluable funds for the Hospice.  

Last year, TCE were approached by a filming team to use the Carbon Capture Plant (CCU) as a backdrop for the filming of COBRA a prime-time TV drama series starring Robert Carlyle and Victoria Hamilton. As a long-time supporter of St Luke’s Hospice, the team couldn’t resist the opportunity to use the filming as a way to raise funds for a good cause. The fee paid by the production company was used to cover all the costs relating to the Twilight Walk, meaning that every penny of the staggering £62,000 raised by the 850 participants could go directly towards helping families and patients cared for by the hospice.

This year, the Northwich-based chemical manufacturer has announced that once again, thanks to an exciting filming project, they would be sponsoring the Walk for the second year in a row, as well as getting involved in the running of the event, with many staff members volunteering to help at the event village.

Phil Davies, General Counsel & Compliance Director, said: “St Luke’s were appointed our “Charity of the Year” some years ago, and after so many of our people came forward with their personal experiences of the incredible work that goes on in the hospice and how their own families were supported during difficult moments, it’s no surprise that the hospice has been our charity partner ever since. Having worked with the amazing team at St Luke’s for many years now on various events and challenges, from the National Three Peaks to the Sandstone Trail, sponsoring the Twilight Walk felt like a natural fit and after last year’s success we jumped at the chance to do it again this year and help raise all important funds!”

Andy Bailey, Corporate Partnerships Manager for St Luke’s adds: “We were delighted with the funds raised last year, which thanks to TCE’s sponsorship, meant that all funds raised could go to support local people and their families. We are thrilled to be working with the team at TCE once again and hope that we can beat last year’s incredible feat. It really is an unforgettable experience, combining the magic of twilight with the beauty of Delamere, as hundreds of supporters walk together for the hospice.”

The charity is close to the hearts of many at TCE who, as well as sponsoring the event, will be running a raffle for walkers to win various prizes.
