    Laxmi Varsani and her family were participants last year.

    Looking back on that, she said: “We did the walk in loving memory of my uncle Manji Patel.

    “He was looked after by St Luke’s Hospice where he received amazing care.

    HSBC UK is the headline sponsor of the event and staff from their local branches will be taking part and joining a team of volunteers to make the event happen.

    Network manager Rajan Malde said: “At HSBC we have a passion for really supporting those who support others in the community and that is exactly what St Luke’s Hospice does. This is why we are so proud to sponsor and support the Midnight Walk.”
