The fundraising team at Woking & Sam Beare Hospices are gearing up for their 6th Midnight Walk, taking place at Mercedes-Benz World on Friday 21 June.
The walk is an 8-mile route around Brooklands, New Haw and West Byfleet and brings women of all ages together. It’s a truly magical evening with many walking in memory of friends and loved ones and others just wanting to take on a challenge, have some fun and support our Hospices. Last year over 800 women walked, talked, and ‘flashed’ their illuminated ‘bunny ears’ around the 8 miles to receive their medal and a hot cup of tea!
Sue Spencer, event organiser said, “We really want to encourage more women than ever to have a go and come out and support us. There is a real carnival atmosphere on the night, people dress up, have some fun and a good work out at the same time! Our youngest walkers are aged just 13 and the eldest in their 80s! So the route is suitable for all fitness abilities.”
The Midnight Walk has raised a staggering £750,000 to date and is the Hospice’s largest fundraising event. All money raised will help to fund our services throughout the boroughs of Woking, Surrey Heath, North Guildford, Runnymede, Spelthorne and Elmbridge.
The Midnight Walk will start from Mercedes-Benz World on June 21st at 10pm (most people are still walking at midnight!) and will follow an 8-mile circular route. It’s an experience not to be missed! Registration is £15. Call our fundraising team on 01483 881752 or visit www.wsb-midnightwalk.co.uk.
