Time to go pink...
A HOSPICE is inviting men, women, children and even dogs to dress up in pink for the biggest event in its fundraising calendar.
Hundreds are expected to take part in the fifth annual Michael Sobell Hospice ‘Ladies in the Night’ walk on June 12, walking either a 5.5 or 9-mile route.
More than 400 people took part last year, raising more than £60,000 for the hospice, which looks after local people with life-limiting illnesses. Organisers hope to smash that total this year and have set themselves a target of £80,000.
Melanie Burfitt, director of income generation, said: “This is the biggest event in the hospice’s fundraising calendar and gives the community a chance to have fun and support a great local cause.”

Prices include a T-shirt, a fundraising pack and breakfast.
