Walkers set for midnight trek

WALKERS are being encouraged to sign up for this year’s St Catherine’s Hospice Midnight Walk.

Information will be available from a stall at Sainsbury’s in Falsgrave tomorrow from 10am to noon.

People will be able to find out about the event, sign up and check sizes for their walker’s T-shirt.

The moonlit fundraiser will take place at midnight on Saturday September 10.

Last year the event raised over £73,000 and during the last three years the Midnight Walk has raised £165,000 for the hospice.

The 6.5-mile circular route starts from the hospice in Throxenby Lane, to the Sands corner, round the Marine Drive, along the Foreshore, up Valley Road then back to the hospice.

Registration costs £10. If you are interested in joining the event as a walker or a marshal please ring fundraising on (01723) 378406.
