Lincoln dance school ‘StreetBeat’ lead the way in promoting annual St Barnabas Hospice fundraiser

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice and StreetBeat Dance and Fitness worked together to raise awareness of the 10k Moonlight Walk in a High Street flash mob on Saturday 8th April.

The flash mob performed outside St Benedict’s Church on Lincoln’s High Street at 2.30pm, where the all-female group dressed in pink emerged from the crowd, to perform in-front of unsuspecting shoppers. They danced to I’m a Lady by Meghan Trainor.

The event was organised by St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice to promote their upcoming Moonlight Walk taking place on Saturday 10th June in Lincoln. The walk will start at Yarbrough Leisure Centre on Riseholme Road and will take participants past the Cathedral and through the streets of Lincoln.

Hayley Evans, Co-owner of StreetBeat Dance and Fitness, said:

“St Barnabas Hospice is such a worthwhile charity and StreetBeat always enjoy having the opportunity to support them.

“The kids and adults were excited to perform to such an unsuspected audience, as well as showing off their love of dance.”

This is the tenth Moonlight Walk the charity has organised, and this year they are looking to raise in excess of £44,000.

Laura Stones, Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“A huge thanks goes to StreetBeat for putting in so much time and energy into organising a flash mob to raise awareness of our charity and our event.

“The Moonlight Walk is not a sport; it is a unique walk that welcomes all Lincolnshire ladies to take part.

“It really will be the biggest night out in Lincoln, as hundreds of ladies gather together dressed in pink to raise vital funds for the hospice.”

Participants can register online at http://www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk/EventDetails/756/moonlight-walk-2017. Adults are charged at £12 and children aged 11 – 17 are charged at £7.

Money raised through the Moonlight Walk allows St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice to continue to provide care and support to people who are seriously ill and dying. The county-wide charity has two Inpatient units, eight Day Therapy centres and bereavement and welfare support.
