A sea of orange sweeps through
ON Friday, 29 September 2017, 130 walkers
stepped out for Maggie's Culture Crawl Liverpool.
The walkers were taking on the
10km tour of cultural buildings across the City Centre, to raise money for the Cancer
Care Centre located next to Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
The route saw walkers visit Victoria Museum and Gallery, Liverpool Medical
Institution, FACT, Liverpool Parish Church, the 'Bombed Out Church'
and ending at
the Museum of Liverpool.
Walkers were treated to performances by Wirral Symphony
Orchestra, PopVox Choir, Shiverpool, Pagoda Arts and Wirral Ukelele Fanatics.
The event is expected to raise over ₤10,000 to help Maggie's Merseyside at
Clatterbridge continue to provide free, professional support to all those living
with cancer who need it across the region.
Each participant was able to write a
message on a lantern, that was later displayed by candlelight at St Luke's Church, as to the reasons they were taking part in the walk for Maggie's.

Walkers said of the 2017 event:- "Greatly enjoyed the walk round Liverpool
and the venues. It was quite a privilege to take part in such a worthwhile
event. Just to say a huge thank you to the organisers and volunteers for last
nights event. It was a first for myself and daughter. We enjoyed the whole
experience and are already looking forward to next years. It was an amazing
uplifting experience, walking with and hearing people's stories relating to
Maggies. The venues were wonderful especially the 'Bombed Out Church.' Sure it was
a huge success for you all. Well done."
