Brewer Daniel Thwaites is sponsoring East Lancashire Hospice’s fundraising Starlight Walk next month.

The sponsorship will see the Wainwright beer branding adorn the T-shirts of participants of the event, which is a 10 mile, ladies-only, fully marshalled walk starting and ending at the DW Soccerdome, Haslingden Road, Blackburn, on May 22. The aim is to raise money for the hospice, which provides care to the people of Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley.

Lee Williams, marketing manager at Daniel Thwaites, said: “We are delighted to be one of the sponsors of the walk. The hospice’s work is vital to the people in our area and it is a great honour to be involved.”
