All request radio show for Virtual Sparkle Night Walkers to be broadcast on Spire Radio
Written by Spire Radio on 16 September 2020
To help the people of North Derbyshire complete their Virtual Sparkle Night in aid of Ashgate Hospicecare, Spire Radio will be live from 6 pm on Saturday 19th September with an all-request show dedicated to everyone taking part in this year’s event.
The Sparkle Night Walk is Ashgate Hospicecare’s biggest fundraising event of the year, so it is vital for the people of North Derbyshire to get involved and help raise vital funds for our local hospice. Virtually sparkling this year, means that everybody can take part, including your pets! So, get your friends, family and dogs involved and take on your own challenge in your own way at North Derbyshire’s biggest fundraising of the year! Coronavirus has presented the hospice with huge ongoing funding challenges. Their retail and coffee shops were closed for several months and are just starting to reopen, and many fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed. In their thirty-year history, they have never had to face a challenge like it.
Jordan Hartshorne, Director of Spire Radio is passionate about raising funds for the hospice, “Having had personal experience of receiving care from the hospice, I know how important this incredible place is. It’s essential that we raise funds this Saturday for the hospice and I hope our show on Spire Radio will encourage people further to set themselves a challenge to be sponsored”
Ashgate Hospicecare Fundraising Manager Carl Jones said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Spire Radio to provide the soundtrack to North Derbyshire’s Markovitz Virtual Sparkle Night activities. Whether you’re bopping along at a kitchen disco, or just need that extra push for your 10k run, sparkly dog walk or cycling challenge, we’re so grateful to have Jordan and the team cheering you on.
“We’ve never needed your support more so get your requests into the Spire Radio team, get signed up at sparklenightwalk.org.uk and get raising funds for your local hospice.”
