Rugby club turns pink for Girls’ Night Out shirt fest
They were handing out T-shirts by the hundreds at Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club last night, but not in the team’s usual green and gold – they were pink.
The club had offered its home to St Nicholas Hospice Care to dish out the pink shirts, covered with white bunny ears, which are being given to each of the 1,600 women taking part in its annual Girls’ Night Out fundraising walk.
On September 12 pyjama-clad participants will walk either six or 11.2 miles around Bury wearing their Girls’ Night Out T-shirts, nightwear and flashing bunny ears.
Jenny Baskett, hospice events and challenges fundraiser, said: “We are really grateful to the rugby club for letting us hold the T-shirt session there.
Last year’s Girls’ Night Out raised £150,000, helping the hospice to continue providing its services to the communities of West Suffolk and Thetford.
There is still time to register to take part in the huge women-only event by going to www.stnicholashospicecare.org.uk.
Registration costs £15, which, naturally, includes a T-shirt plus flashing bunny ears, and your a medal, hot chocolate and hot bacon roll when you finish the walk.
