Branded as the “Biggest Girls’ Night Out in Lincoln,” St Barnabas Hospice will host popular Moonlight Walk event this June to raise money and remember loved ones.

Lincoln, 2nd March 2017 - Now in its tenth year, the Moonlight Walk is going back to its roots and is set to be bigger and better than ever, with inspirational women supporting the cause at Yarborough Leisure Centre on 10th June 2017.

The Moonlight Walk is a flagship event for St Barnabas, and features a 10K route around uphill Lincoln, down to St Marks and back. St Barnabas invites women to embrace their inner sparkle and dress head to toe in pink! This year, St Barnabas aims to get 1,000 women on board with the Walk.

With registration opening at 8pm at Yarborough Leisure Centre, women can take part in a fun warm up and will be able to purchase merchandise, professional photos and face painting before the walk begins at 10pm. Melt Down Catering will also be there to give each participant a pulled pork bap or veggie burger and a hot drink upon completion. Each participant will also receive a pink t-shirt and finishers’ medal on the night.

Laura Stones, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“Whether you want to get fit or remember a loved one, join St Barnabas and hundreds of inspirational women for a brilliant night to remember.

“The money raised from this and other similar events is integral to help St Barnabas provide continuous care and support for patients and their families. We hope that participants this year will raise in excess of £44,000.”

The event is a great idea for local businesses to get involved in and promote staff morale. Alternatively, you could gather together a group of friends, or even enter your club or society.

Early bird registration is only £12 for adults and £7 for children (aged 11+ only), with each individual being asked to raise a minimum of £20.17. It is a female only event this year, and the early bird prices will end on 2nd May.
