Moonlight Walkers raising funds for Treetops HospiceIt's the third year, Treetops Hospice has organised the ladies-only event; a 7 mile walk around Derby city centre, starting and ending at Derby Rugby Club.
It's to raise money for Treetops which cares for adults in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire with a life-limiting illness, such as cancer or motor neurone disease.
Last year, an incredible 452 ladies took to the streets, helping to raise £46,000 for the charity.
Gay Evans, community fundraiser at Treetops Hospice, said:
"The Moonlight Walk is such a fun way of supporting the hospice, and I really hope we can build on the success of last year. Ideally, we'd like to raise at least £50,000 this year but we can only do that if people sign up and join us on the night."
There are also several prizes to be won by taking part. Be in the check-in line by 9pm on the night to be entered into the draw to win dinner, bed & breakfast for two at the Cathedral Quarter Hotel, Derby.
Walkers returning their sponsorship money by 1st August 2012 could win dinner, bed and breakfast for two at the Lace Market Hotel, Nottingham. Then there's a meal for two at Jury's Inn in Derby for the most sponsorship money paid in by 1st August.
