This year, there is a 10 or five-mile route to choose from and registration is now open. A 20 per cent discount is available for anyone signing up before midnight on April 16.

The charity’s matron of clinical services, Carly Wills, said: “I love taking part in Star Shine. It’s great fun and an uplifting way to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones.

“It also gives those of us who work for the charity an opportunity to remember the patients we care for. It’s really inclusive with a wheelchair-friendly route. We welcome adults and children over 10 years of age - with a paying adult - and dogs outside on a lead.

“It’s always an amazing atmosphere; you can feel the energy and passion of everyone taking part, including our incredible volunteers who help on the night.”

Star Shine Night Walk starts at 8pm from Cambridge Rugby Club, Volac Park, Granchester Road CB3 9ED.

A Star Radio DJ will be getting the crowd warmed up with a selection of great music before they set off. Walkers are encouraged to dress up and accessorise to set the city aglow.

Last year, more than 300 participants and 80 volunteers were involved, helping to raise more than £34,000, from a combination of registration fees and much-welcome participant sponsorship.
