Gallery: Ladies in pyjamas in charity street walk
AN UNUSUAL sight greeted people on a night out in Bury St Edmunds at the weekend as more than 500 pyjama-clad women marched through the streets.
With their colourful nightwear and bunny ears, the woman walked an 11-mile route through the town to raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
And the fun girls’ night out raised a huge amount of money for the hospice, with cash counted so far already topping �87,000.
Jenny Baskett, challenges and events fundraiser at St Nicholas, said: “It was a wonderful night and I can only express my admiration for all those who took part and supported this event.
“Last year we raised �60,000 and this weekend will clearly be a great deal higher.

“The walk has developed into one of our major fundraising appeals and the money will make a vital difference to our work.”
All 550 walkers set off at 7pm from Bury’s Angel Hill after the ribbon was cut by 93-year-old Sophie Benson from Haverhill who went on to complete the charity walk.
