The biggest party in town will see more than 2,000 people march through the town in support of a local charity.
St Elizabeth Hospice has today announced that 2,000 people have now signed up to take part in the Midnight Walk with applications still rolling in before the big day on Saturday 12 May.
Becky Jedrzejewski, events and challenges fundraiser at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “The Midnight Walk has been so well supported over the last twelve years and it’s wonderful to see that local people continue to enjoy the event and choose this as a way to support the hospice.
“We’ve got lots planned for this year with many of our favourite returning for the evening including Just Jay Dance and the Townsend Twins to get everyone warmed up and ready for the walk. We’ll also have some new surprise elements too on the night to remind people of why they’re walking but above all, we want to make sure that everyone has a great nice while raising vital funds for the hospice.”
The Midnight Walk will this year begin and end at Trinity Park and walkers have the option to walk either six or ten miles. Both routes make a stop at the hospice to allow people a moment of quiet reflection and to place a tag on the memory tree.
Places are still available on the walk and details of how to sign up can be found here.
