Fantastic turnout for Midnight Walk 2018

Tuesday, 23 October 2018 at 8.00am

At the start line - and they're off!

On Friday 28th September over 500 ladies took the streets around Woking to take part in the eight mile Midnight Walk 2018.

The atmosphere was amazing as ladies of all ages gathered at Woking Leisure Centre ready to take on the challenge, walking together to remember loved ones and to raise vital funds for the hospice. The room was filled with glow-in-the dark t-shirts and flashing bunny ears as the lights were dimmed to observe a minute's silence before the walk began at 10pm.

Trident Honda sponsored this year's event and they also sponsor the annual Dragon Boat Race that takes place at Goldsworth Park Lake just around the corner from Woking Hospice.

Sponsored by Trident Honda and supported by Woking Leisure Centre, Woking and Sam Beare Hospices delivered their 10th annual Midnight Walk with over 700 ladies of all generations. Each donning their capes and very eye catching flashing bunny ears.

Total monies raised is still to be confirmed but the event was extremely well attended and the atmosphere from start to finish was fantastic. Woking Leisure Centre was our new venue for registration, followed by a warm up lead by fitness experts from Nuffield Health and Freedom Leisure, before the ladies set off on the eight mile walk. The sea of flashing lights could be seen through Woking Centre and up to the new hospice in Goldsworth Park Centre, around the lake, and back to Woking Leisure Centre via Horsell. At the finish line the ladies were greeted and presented with medals by event sponsor Richard Roberts, Managing Director of Trident Honda, and newly confirmed permanent CEO of the hospice Jayne Cooper.
