A LADY who walked a midnight beach walk for charity last year was the first to sign up for this year's event.

Sally Mohan from Compton Bishop in Somerset took part in Weston Hospicecare’s five-mile walk last year and enjoyed it so much she was the first to apply for the walk in September.

Sally said; “GPs can’t be there for patients 100 per cent of the time and therefore it is great to know that we have a resource as fantastic as the hospice in our local community that we can turn to.

“Last year a group of us took part in the midnight beach walk to raise money for the hospice.

“We all dressed up and wore pink glasses and earrings and some of us wore pink cowboy hats, it was so much fun.

“Events like this are essential for the hospice to raise vital funds and by taking part it is my way of giving them something back for the wonderful care that our family friend received.

“We can’t wait to take part again this year.”
