Time to go pink...

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”

For de­tails of re­duced en­try costs be­fore the end of the month and to reg­is­ter, visit www.michael­so­bell­hos­pice.co.uk or call 01923 844 829.

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