The Woking & Sam Beare Hospices have now launched their 2018 Midnight Walk and have revealed that this year's theme will be 'The Night Owls - We care 24/7', raising awareness of the free end-of-life care that is given by the charity's staff and volunteers around the clock.
Sponsored for the third year by Trident Honda - the launch was attended by Managing Director, Richard Roberts, along with the stunning Honda NSX (see photograph1). The 11th annual ladies-only event will start and finish at Woking Leisure Centre on Friday 25 May, with more than 800 walkers following a new route that will be announced very soon.
Each year the Midnight Walk has an exclusive t-shirt design - for 2018 the participants will be sporting fantastic glow-in-the-dark t-shirts, featuring 'The Night Owl' of the event's theme against a backdrop of the moon and stars on a dark navy t-shirt. The first 300 ladies to register will benefit from the early bird entry fee of just £18, which includes this eye-catching t-shirt.
