Trainers and Tiaras
850 ladies took part in the seventh annual St Helena Hospice Midnight Walk on Saturday 23rd May, raising tens of thousands of pounds.
The popular ladies-only event saw the enthusiastic hospice supporters join in the ‘Trainers and Tiaras’ themed 12km walk, starting and finishing at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium.
It is hoped that this event will raise in the region of £100,000 for St Helena Hospice, which could pay for 500 Clinical Nurse Specialist visits to patients, giving them dedicated advice and someone to talk to.
This year the event had some new additions with girls aged 11 and over being allowed to register, as well as an earlier start time. This year’s walk featured a new memory stop, which allowed ladies who were walking in memory of a loved one the chance to write a message and attach it to our memory arch and tree.
Some Midnight Walk favourites also returned including an energetic warm up from Director of Education and Research, Bridget Moss, a performance from IGNITE dance troop and a number of men from Colchester Rugby Club wearing just collars, cuffs and trousers.
Fliss Strode, Events Manager, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the hospice’s 30th anniversary Midnight Walk. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and to see lots of new and returning faces.”
“We’re extremely grateful to all of the local companies who have helped make the event possible; Colchester United, Capel Plant, Crystal Clear, Eat Natural, TES, Torrent Trackside, Lifehouse Spa & Hotel and IGNITE dance troop as well as saying a big thank you to our wonderful volunteers for giving up their time to help make the event a success.”
