The charity’s annual Glowalk, in which walkers dress in brightly-coloured clothing and hold glo-sticks while taking part in a night walk, raised more than �14,000.
Debbie Douglas, a star of TV show The Only Way Is Essex, launched the walk and was joined by more than 300 walkers.
The 10k illuminating procession started at the hospice and also took in South Woodford and Wanstead.
