Spring is in the air and it’s time to celebrate life, step by step, with the return of the much-loved Lagan Tow Path Hospice Celebration Walk on Saturday May 18.

Starting at Lagan Valley Island Civic Centre, and finishing at Belfast Activity Centre, Barnett’s Park, this stunning 12km walk will take you along the river and canal system through a variety of wetland, riverside meadows and mixed woodland from Belfast to Lisburn.

Miss Northern Ireland Kaitlyn Clarke and actress Olivia Nash, NI Hospice Vice-President, recently launched the 2024 series of Hospice Celebration Walks, which take place in seven scenic locations across Northern Ireland.

For over 40 years, the Hospice Celebration Walks have raised millions of pounds, supporting specialised care for families throughout Northern Ireland. To continue this vital work, NI Hospice is urging Ulster Star readers in Greater Belfast and the Lagan Valley to lace up their walking shoes and take steps in aid of the charity’s specialist palliative care, starting by signing up at nihospice.org/walks.
