Sponsor Galleries Girl Karen

19 March 2012

The Galleries Shopping Centre, main sponsor of the 2012 Wigan & Leigh Hospice Star Trekkers Walk is urging Women of Wigan to sign up and take part.

he Galleries has launched the "Star Trekkers Galleries Girls" which includes shopping centre staff and staff from shops within the centre who are participating in the walk and uniting to support Wigan & Leigh Hospice.

One of the first Galleries Girls to sign up for the Star Trekkers is Karen Cox.

Karen is the Centre Business Manager at The Galleries. She was eager to sign up for the Star Trekkers event and currently is the top online fundraiser for the Star Trekkers campaign. Karen completed the first Star Trekker walk for the hospice in 2008 after experiencing the hospice's fantastic work.

Karen added: "Wigan & Leigh Hospice provided an excellent level of care for my uncle Brian Cullen.Sadly, Brian got diagnosed with cancer at the age of 51 and the hospice provided such a fantastic level of care and support, not only for Brian, but for our family too.I was overwhelmed by the generosity, the care and support the hospice provides.I would encourage all ladies of Wigan to join."

Your can sponsor Karen online.

Star Trekkers is an annual ladies only event, one of the biggest in the hospice's fund-raising calendar and this year is taking place on Saturday 9 June, starting at 10pm. There is a choice of a 5 or 8 mile route. Both routes are marshalled. They start and finish at Morrisons in Ince.The ladies will be entertained by a Wish FM roadshow before the start of the walk while warming up with Zumba moves!
