Call to sign up for Midnight Walk through Windsor for hospice

Night owls familiar with pounding the midnight pavements to help Windsor's hospice are in for a change this year.

This year's Thames Hospicecare Midnight Walk takes place on Saturday, June 30 - raising money for the 24-hour hospice in Hatch Lane, Windsor, and its sister day hospice at Heatherwood Hospital, Ascot.

The routes will be different but there will still be the chance to do a 13 or six mile route, starting from Churchmead School, Datchet and taking in the sights of Windsor and Old Windsor.

Last year more than 450 walkers took part raising nearly £70,000 for the hospice.

This year sees the hospice's 25th anniversary and senior fundraiser Michelle Bowdidge hopes to beat that amount, saying: "This is the perfect opportunity to get your family, friends and work colleagues out supporting a great cause and having a lot of fun."

The walk is open to men and women over 14, a guardian is needed up to the age of 16. It is all marshalled and a continental breakfast will await walkers when they arrive back.

Entry is £15 with entrants being asked to raise as much in sponsorship as they can. Call Michelle on 01753 84893 or email mbowdidge@thameshospice.org.
