A final call has gone out for women to put on their pyjamas and take part in an annual charity walk in Bury St Edmunds.

More than 1,700 women have already signed up for St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Girls Night Out on Saturday, September 12 – but organisers are hoping for a final push of participants.

The walk sees women come together in their pyjamas and flashing bunny ears while walking either six or 11.2 miles around the town.

Organiser Jenny Baskett, events and challenges fund-raiser, said her ultimate dream was to reach 2,000 registrations.

She said: “The money raised by this brilliant event helps the hospice in continuing to support the local community for free.

“It’s our biggest fund-raising event of the year, so it makes a huge difference to what we are able to do. Last year we raised a massive £150,000, but of course we want to beat that this year.”

Registration costs £15, which includes a T-shirt and flashing bunny ears, and closes at midnight on Thursday, September 10.
