Two hundred women helped raise more than £15,000 for Haven House with our first ever 10k Sparkle Walk sponsored by Hetheringtons on Friday 18 May.

Participants turned the streets into a sea of pink with Haven House t-shirts, glitter headboppers and sparkly paraphernalia.   

The event started at Haven House in Woodford Green at 7pm with walkers snaking through Woodford, Roding Valley Country Park, South Woodford and finishing at The Cuckfield pub in Wanstead.

Katie Tyler, Events Manager at Haven House, said: “We are thrilled that our Sparkle Walk has raised more than £15,000 for our hospice with sponsorship still coming in.

“For a new event this really exceeded all expectations and to see so many women coming together to raise funds for local life-limited children and their families was wonderful.

“We are grateful to our sponsor, Hetheringtons, who really got behind our Sparkle Walk and even turned their shop window pink to promote the event.  

“The beautiful weather and the excitement of the Royal Wedding gave us all an extra special reason to sparkle.”
