Welcoming the partnership with Northern Ireland Hospice Rachel McGuigan, from Ashers Baking Company said: “We have always been aware of the fantastic care that hospice nurses provide to families across the Province and we are really looking forward to the walk at Portstewart. Ashers Baking Company encourages everyone to step out and take part with us on Saturday 31st March where we will be providing Ashers goodies and refreshments.”

Speaking of the importance of the Hospice Walk, Events Manager for NI Hospice, Joanna Pawson said: “The 2012 walk needs to raise £180,000 to ensure that every family coping with a serious illness gets the help that they need.
