On Saturday 2nd July, Horsham Park hosted the much revered and fondly regarded St Catherine's Hospice Midnight Walk.  A household name for many, St Catherine's Hospice in Crawley provides end-of-life care to patients in Crawley, Horsham, Mid-Sussex and East Surrey.

For Horsham based company Assurity Consulting, 2016 marks their 30th birthday. Keen to show their support and commitment to the much loved Hospice, they decided to sponsor the event as part of their celebrations. After hiring a photo-booth and ordering 450 tubes of branded jelly beans for the walkers, the company rallied a troop of 6 volunteer walkers and 3 volunteer marshals from their employees to take part in the event itself.

On the night, after a 'clubbercise' warmup, around 400 people completed either the seven, 13 or 20 mile route through the night in Horsham. The majority finished in the early hours of the next morning.

Marketing Coordinator Keely Bicknell commented, "There was a real sense of passion and commitment from the walkers, even the 100 brave people who had signed up for the gruelling 20 mile route! Everyone was raring to go!"

Assurity Consulting's six walkers (aka the 'Assurity Consulting Ladies') raised almost £700 between them and the event overall is on target to meet its £80,000 target.

Assurity Consulting has always held Corporate Responsibility high on its list of priorities, supporting a number of local charities.

"As a growing organisation we are delighted to have been able to support such a wonderful cause within our community. The team at St Catherine's Hospice put a great deal of energy and effort into all of their events to make them as fun and exciting as possible for the fundraisers. We all really enjoyed being part of the Midnight Walk." Suzanne Clarkson-Lewis, Marketing Manager.
