Get­ting ready to glow

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MOTHER and daugh­ter from Bucks are among scores of fam­i­lies, friends and work col­leagues pre­par­ing to glow for a hos­pice’s new neon-themed mid­night walk.

The Hos­pice of St Fran­cis’ Glow for It Mid­night Walk will take place on Satur­day, June 27.

Lynda Wild­man, 68, and her daugh­ter Car­rie, 33, have signed up for the 10 mile route as Team Wild Thing.

Daugh­ter Car­rie, from Cum­ber­land Close, Lit­tle Chal­font, said: “I ab­so­lutely love spend­ing time with my mum. Mum walks a lot and I do Zumba, cy­cling and have run six half marathons as well as sev­eral five and 10Ks. We should get round no prob­lem – I’m sure the fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere will spur us on!”

More than 600 walk­ers will light-up the night as they fol­low one of two brand new five or 10 mile routes around the streets of Hemel Hemp­stead.
