Groups of friends, colleagues and family are invited to spend a fun night under the stars raising money for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The hospice’s fifth annual Girls Night Out will take place on September 14 and the charity is hoping hundreds of women will join them on a moonlit walk.

The Cloister Babes, a team of parents, whose sons sing with the St Edmundsbury Cathedral Choristors, will be among the crowds

Cloister Babe, Nikki Upton, said: “I had a great time last time I did it.

“It’s just a fantastic atmosphere it felt like there were thousands of woman taking part everybody was really excited about it - it was a real buzz.

“We realise how much it costs to run the hospice so we are happy to help them it’s nice to support something.”

Jenny Baskett, St Nicholas Hospice Care events and challenges fund-raiser, said: “We always have lots of teams sign up for Girls Night Out, so why not get your colleagues, friends, family or people who live near you involved.

“You can all club together to raise sponsorship money as well as walk together on the night.

“Walking as part of a group is a great way to remember loved ones lost, as well as know you are all in it together for the same purpose.”

The pyjama themed night offers participants two routes, a 11.2 mile option or a shorter six mile walk.

So far 217 people have registered to take part.

All those who register before May 31 qualify for an early-bird discounted rate of £10.
