The fifth annual Girls’ Night Out Moonlight Walk, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, could be the biggest and best yet, with 711 women already signed up to take part.

This year’s walk, which takes place on Saturday, September 14, in Bury St Edmunds, has a pyjama party theme, with participants asked to don their favourite nightwear (and trainers or walking shoes) for the fundraising challenge.

Jenny Baskett, St Nicholas Hospice Care events and challenges fundraiser, said: “We are thrilled so many women have already signed up to walk with us on this year’s Girls’ Night Out.

“To have more than 700 registrations already means we know it is going to be a brilliant party. But there is still plenty of time to get involved, so speak to your friends and family about taking part.

“We would love to have 1,000 women taking part. There is a choice of two routes – six or 11.2miles – and all we ask is that you wear your favourite pyjamas and have a good time.”
