A 10km walk will start from the Broadway Shopping Centre on Saturday

Walkers will be donning all things neon to create a retro-walk through Bexleyheath on Saturday.

In an event set to light up the night sky, local people are getting ready to walk 10km around the town centre to raise money for the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice.

Following on from previous successes, this year the hospice’s moonlit walk will see participants wearing 80s-themed attire.

The hospice costs £8million a year, and relies on donations from the local community.

Setting off from the Broadway Shopping Centre in Bexleyheath, walkers will trek 10km before returning to the centre.

Manager at the shopping centre, Peter Sedge, said: “We have long supported the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice and the wonderful work they do.

“They are an important part of the community, helping families in their darkest hours and allowing people to live their final days with the dignity and support they deserve.”

Head of income generation at the hospice, Sarah O’Halloran, said: “We are so grateful to all of those who help fund the hospice services by taking part in events, sponsorship and other donations. Every penny really does count.”

To sign up for the walk, visit or pay £25 to join on the day.
