Chris has volunteered for the Midnight Walk an incredible 12 times!

I started volunteering because my wife Katy was helped by St Catherine’s. Volunteering at the Midnight Walk is my way of saying thanks and give back.

Being a route guide can be very busy but there’s a great vibe and everyone is happy to be there doing it, and lots of walkers are remembering relatives and friends on the night. It’s a great evening and good fun directing and encouraging people, particularly towards the end!”

I’d encourage anyone to come along and volunteer at the event. It’s not difficult or onerous – you just have to be awake through the night and be willing to help out. Even if you can only give up a couple of hours, it’s good fun and it’s a great way to give back and show your support for St Catherine’s Hospice.
