Working with Blood Cancer UK, we covered their large-scale Walk of Light event in Birmingham, which raises awareness about blood cancer by bringing together individuals, groups and families with shared values and experiences with the disease.

Taking place at night with supplied lanterns and many others decorated in lights of every colour, the gathered walkers made their way around Cannon Hill Park. The result was a great show of support and literally shone a light on a disease that will affect one in 16 men and in 22 women at some point in their lives.

With two camera operators and a drone, we saw the event through from start to finish.
