GALLERY: Night skies lit up as Myton Hospice hosts 'Glow in the City' event

THE NIGHT skies of Coventry were lit up in the name of charity as The Myton Hospices held its Glow in the City event.

Around 900 people ran, walked or danced their way around the city centre – the majority of them doing so in memory or support of loved ones.

Money raised by the event, which is still being counted, is well on its way to its £40,000 target – cash vital to the running of the hospices.

Myton Events Team Leader, Lucy Turner, said: “I loved seeing everyone’s outfits and the new glow zones looked amazing.

“It was great to see everyone get completely doused in paint and I always love the Zumba warm up organised by Matt Print.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that took part and all of our fantastic volunteers.”

Now that GITC has been and gone Lucy is busy working on two more upcoming events for Myton.

She added: “Our next big event is Walk for Myton, which is a sponsored 3, 6 or 12 mile walk around the stunning Warwickshire countryside on Sunday, May 14.

“It’s a free event which starts and ends in our Warwick Myton Hospice grounds.

“We will also shortly be launching our next glow event, Glow in the Moonlight, which is on Saturday, September 16 and takes place in Warwick.

“This is a really special event as we will be celebrating our 35th anniversary so we’ll be having a huge 80s themed party and encouraging everyone to get dressed up and join in the fun.”
