To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Midnight Walk, our popular fundraising event, we are inviting men to join the women at our 2018 event.
This year’s theme is Hats and Hair dos and supporters are encouraged to dig out their most extravagant hat, or one which holds great memories – if hats are not their thing, a wild hair do or crazy wig will fit the bill!
The walk takes place on Saturday 23rd June 2018, and is open to men, women, girls and boys aged 11 and over. Walkers can choose between a 3 mile or 7.5 mile route, both starting at a new location in Phoenix Square, Wyncolls Road, Colchester.
By booking their place early, participants can save money on their registration fee before the price goes up! Early bird prices: 3 miles is £5 and 7.5 miles is £10. Walkers taking part as a group can also benefit by registering nine places and getting the tenth place free!
Lisa Chenery, Events Fundraiser at St Helena Hospice, said: “We are so excited for this year’s event and we cannot wait to celebrate our tenth birthday with all of our walkers old and new! Inviting both men and women this year means that everyone can join the party!
There’s a new route, a new start and finish location and lots of new surprises along the way – it’s our birthday so let’s get the party started! Walk on your own, with your family and friends, with the lads from the pub, with your exercise class… the choice is yours but don’t miss out on an early bird ticket and join in on our hats and hair dos theme.”
