Midnight mums raise £14,500 for Rainbows

Almost two hundred women including two beauty queens gathered at midnight on Saturday to create magic by raising money to help care for children and young people at Rainbows Hospice.

The Miles for Midnight Walk began at Loughborough Town Hall, where the ladies limbered up with aerobics and a massage before setting off on the six mile round-trip by moonlight.

A moving account from two mums of how Rainbows had helped their children and families started the evening, then the mood was raised with music from a local band as the walk started on the stroke of midnight.
