VIDEO: Record numbers at Girls Night Out charity walk




Angel Hill in Bury St Edmunds was a sea of flashing bunny ears last night as a record number of women set off on the Girls Night Out charity walk.

The spectacular event, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, saw around 1,800 women tackle either a six or 11.2-mile route around the town wearing pyjamas and light-up bunny ears.

After a quick warm-up Zumba session, the girls headed off on their walk at 8pm - finishing back at Angel Hill by midnight.

Organiser Jenny Baskett, Hospice Events and Challenges Fund-raiser, said: “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.”
