Friday 15th June saw hundreds of women hit the streets of Brighton in style as they headed out on a 13 mile Midnight Walk to raise money for the Hospice. So far the total in pledged sponsorship is approximately £109,000 which will go to fund Patient Support Services.
Many women wore fancy dress outfits, brightly coloured wigs, hats and flashing bunny ears, some even dressed up their dogs. There was a fantastic atmosphere at Brighton Racecourse where the event started. Women had their faces painted, danced along with the band and chatted until the Mayor of Brighton Councillor Bill Randall sent them on their way. The evening stayed dry and Bear Rd was a sea of flashing lights. JuiceFM's Andrea Fox was also on the walk interviewing women on their way round.
Hospice Fundraising Director Robert Griffiths said: "On behalf of the hospice I would like to congratulate all those ladies who took part in the walk on Friday evening. Undeterred by the recent weather and challenging forecast, hundreds took part on the night. Our thanks also go to those people who generously sponsored our walkers and all the volunteers, without whose support this event would not be possible."
"The Midnight Walk has long been established as the hospice's single biggest fundraising event held each year and we are already looking forward to seeing even more ladies take part in our 2013 event."
