Ipswich: Hospice charity calls for people to take part in enchanted walk

A HOSPICE is calling for support as it counts down to a special event for youngsters to raise money for the charity.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is on the hunt for families to take part in an enchanted walk in Ipswich.

The annual Twilight Walk will see youngsters and their parents joining in a magical three-mile adventure.

The event, which raised �21,000 last year, has already attracted more than 150 entrants.

During the walk, families will visit the Treehouse gardens where they will meet an array of characters.

Patsy Johnson-Cisse, of EACH’s fundraising team, said: “I’m so excited this year. I’ve met with Articus who provide the entertainment in our enchanted garden, and discussed the plans for pirates, princesses, fire-eaters, a pirate ship, a crocodile and so much more – it’s made me feel like a child again.”

The Twilight Walk, on October 13, will see children dressed as pirates and princesses experience an enchanted forest.
