It’s Time To Sign Up for Hospice Girls Night Out...
St Nicholas Hospice Care is calling for women to wear their pyjamas and sign up for its 2014 Girls Night Out moonlight walk. Participants, who wear nightwear, trainers and flashing bunny ears, will walk 11.2 or six-miles around Bury St Edmunds on the evening of 13 September.
Rachael Leeves, 28, of Bury, took part for the first time last year. She said: “My dad had pancreatic cancer and the Hospice staff came out to us in his final days. The fact that the nurses came out to us was a huge help. We would have been lost without the Hospice.”
In 2013 1,020 women took part in Girls Night Out, raising more than £115,000.
Jenny Baskett, Hospice Events and Challenges Fundraiser, said: “We are aiming to make this year’s walk even bigger and better, so we are appealing for women to sign up for the walk, bring their friends and family and be ready for a party.
“All the funds raised by Girls Night Out will help to support patients and families in West Suffolk and Thetford.”
Registration is open now, with an early sign-up offer of £10 per person valid until 31 May (£15 registration from 1 June). To sign up, go to www.stnicholashospicecare.org.uk or pick up an application form at any of the Hospice’s charity shops.
