Join Leicestershire Hospice for a Pyjama Party

Leicestershire mums, daughters, sisters and females alike need to don their PJs, grab a teddy and stroll six miles around the streets of Loughborough for our Moonlight Walk.

The six mile sponsored walk, on Saturday 12 October, starts at Charnwood Indoor Bowls at 10pm. Ladies will walk around Loughborough town centre before finishing back at the bowls club. In true pyjama party style, ladies taking on the moonlight adventure will be treated to a midnight feast after the walk at a celebration party.

Katie Baxter, community and events manager at Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, said: “We want as many Leicestershire ladies as possible to join us for this huge pyjama party. By taking part in this event, you will not only be having fun with the girls, you will also be keeping fit and raising funds for Rainbows.

“Rainbows is the only hospice in the East Midlands that delivers support to children and young people with life-limited illnesses. Our team of medical professionals and specialists help relieve symptoms; improve quality of life; and care for children until the end, as well as supporting parents and siblings through their bereavement.

“So, tell all of your girlie friends and relatives grab your teddies and come and join us for what promises to be a fun evening.”

Although this is a ladies only event, men are needed to volunteer their services by helping out with marshalling and refreshments.

Entry is £12. For more information, contact 0800 9521133, email fundraising@rainbows.co.uk or visit www.rainbows.co.uk/moonlightwalk
