WESTON Hospicecare is extending the opportunity for women to get involved with its Not the Midnight Beach Walk event by offering the chance to sign up on the night.
Despite a boost of more than 100 fundraisers who answered the charity’s call for help last week, the hospice charity is still down on registrations.
It is now inviting women to sign up on Saturday night, just before the walk takes place at 6.30pm.
This year, the walk along the beach, from Uphill to Weston and back, has been scheduled to start in the early evening due to unfavourable tide times. Participants can choose to take on the 10k route, or the traditional 5k walk, which will be lit with pink candle flares.
The charity’s fundraising manager said: “Rather than dwell on the reasons why participation numbers are lower than we’d hoped, we want to welcome any lady who would like to sign up on the evening.”
Women can head to Uphill beach from 5pm, or 6pm to sign up, and join 400 others who have chosen to complete the walk. Participants can also enjoy some live music on the night and get a free goody bag.
