Celebrate the 10th year of the Florence Nightingale Hospice Midnight Walk this year
Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity's Midnight Walk began in 2010 with 550 ladies walking up to 12 miles and raised £65,000.
By 2018 the event had opened up to include men and has become their largest fundraising event.
Over the past nine years the walk has raised over £500,000 towards running Florence Nightingale Hospice — providing much needed support to patients and their families across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Bedfordshire
This time they are inviting everyone to join them for the 10th anniversary of the walk on Saturday 22nd June 2019 to celebrate the lives of loved ones and the work that the Hospice does to provide comfort to those in need.
"The Midnight Walk is such an inspiring event to take part in and plays a huge role in our fundraising for the Hospice," explains Lee Lloyd, Head of Fundraising at the charity. "We hope that this 10th Anniversary walk will be a record-breaker with the highest number of walkers ever."
Walkers can choose from the 5 mile or 10 miles circular routes — both starting from Aylesbury College at midnight with entertainment along the way.
All walkers will receive a free souvenir Midnight Walk 2019 T-shirt, as well as a medal and complimentary breakfast at the end of the Walk.
