Adults, children and well-behaved dogs walked under the night sky and set the city aglow with their colourful outfits and twinkling accessories.

Participants selected a 10 or five-mile route, starting and finishing at Cambridge Rugby Union Football Club, Volac Park.

Groups of friends and work colleagues walked alongside families in celebration of loved ones, honouring their memory by displaying their name and heartfelt messages on the back of their Star Shine themed T-shirts.

Star Radio DJ Andy Lake warmed up the crowd before they set off, following a welcome by the charity’s CEO Sharon Allen.

Donna Talbot, director of communications and income generation at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, said: “It was wonderful night, a fantastic atmosphere.

“Star Shine is a unique event remembering loved ones and raising much-needed funds to provide vital care and support.

“Our incredible army of volunteers were terrific, offering their support at the Rugby Club and at marshal points around the city. We would like to thank everyone who came together and made this event such a success and we hope to see you next year.”
