Sarah Stott, Events Fundraiser for CHSW said: “We would like to thank everyone who has signed up to take part in this year’s Falmouth Moonlight Memory Walk and the hard work they have put into their fundraising already. This event is raising money that is going straight to the care of the families that use our hospices so every donation is truly appreciated. We really look forward to seeing you all on the night and hope you enjoy this special event”.
