PICTURE GALLERY: Rowans Hospice Starlit Walk
FROM superheroes to Star Wars' stormtroopers, hundreds of children dressed up to remember someone special.
About 400 children brought a splash of colour to Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard last night as part of the Starlit Walk.
Families enjoyed a one-and-a-half or three-mile stroll around the naval base in aid of The Rowans Hospice.
And it was a chance to remember someone who had died and been cared for by staff at the Purbrook hospice in their final days.
Janet Fitzgerald, 50, of Gosport showed her support with daughter Imogen, 11.
The pair were doing it in memory of Imogen’s dad Brian who died of cancer in 2012.
Janet said: ‘The hospice helped us through a difficult time. This is the children’s way of giving something back.’
It is hoped the night will raise £25,000 for the hospice.
Amanda Mahoney, of The Rowans, said: ‘It was a very emotional and moving evening.’
