Trethowans is throwing its support behind Winchester’s first ever Starlit Trail, which is set to take place on Friday 20 September 2019.
The sponsored walk, organised by Wessex Cancer Trust, is designed to raise money for local people living with cancer.
“As a business that is an established part of the Winchester community, we firmly believe in supporting groups and organisations around us,” said Trethowans Managing Partner, Chris Whiteley.
“With an office on Southgate Street in the City Centre, we’re pleased to be sponsoring the Starlit Trail – a very special event which begins at the Guildhall and takes a 5k route through the city.”
Wessex Cancer Trust’s events manager, Laura Beavis, added: “We’re all about community at Wessex Cancer Trust. We put services in local communities so people affected by Cancer have somewhere to go at a time they most need support.”
“We rely on voluntary donations, and raising money through events like the Starlit Trail is crucial to keep our services running. This is a brand new event which will give local people the chance to be a fundraising star and see Winchester in a different light.”
Every year, around 23,000 people are diagnosed with Cancer within the Wessex region. The Wessex Cancer Trust believes there should be help and support available to everyone living with Cancer, when and where they need it.
