In less than two months, over 800 people have already signed up to take part in St Elizabeth Hospice’s Midnight Walk which is returning to Ipswich this May.
Sponsored by Hawk Express Cabs, the Midnight Walk sees the independent Suffolk charity encourage the local community to don their brightest fancy dress outfits and bring the party atmosphere to Ipswich to raise funds for the hospice through sponsorship, as well as providing an opportunity to remember loved ones who are no longer with us.
Since early bird tickets for the much-loved event went live in January, an incredible 802 have signed up to take part in the night of fun and celebration on Saturday 20th May, with people still signing up every day.
Nichola Whymark, Head of Partnership Fundraising at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “Wow! What a phenomenal response from the local community and our supporters to the news our Midnight Walk is returning this year.
“We cannot wait to join alongside you and bring the party atmosphere to Ipswich. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet, you can still purchase on our website and you will also be able to register on the night.
“The Midnight Walk provides a brilliant opportunity to celebrate and remember the lives of loved ones no longer with us, at an event full of colour and fun. So please do join us in making the Midnight Walk 2023 bigger and brighter than ever before.”
After taking a break in 2022, while the hospice hosted the Big Hoot Ipswich 2022 art trail, the Midnight Walk returns this May with a neon theme.
This spring’s event will be the sixteenth edition of the flagship fundraiser and will see supporters completing walking routes of 5 or 10 miles, with both routes starting at the home of Ipswich Town FC, Portman Road from 9.30pm, with on the day registration beginning at 7pm.
Both routes will take supporters from Ipswich Town Football Club at Portman Road and along Ipswich Waterfront. The 5 mile route will continue up to Foxhall Road to the hospice, whilst the 10 mile route will go past The Hold, Christchurch Park, to Rushmere and link up at the hospice. Both routes will return along Ipswich Waterfront, returning to ITFC’s ground to end the night.
Standard tickets for £14 are available until 14th May and on the night registration will be available for £20. St Elizabeth Hospice shops will also be stocking plenty of outfit inspiration for attendees to purchase ahead of the Midnight Walk
