Women of Yorkshire unite! The Leeds Midnight Walk is taking place on Saturday 12 May so get all the girls together and join over 1,000 women filling the streets of North Leeds for what promises to be a very special and entertaining evening, all in aid of St. Gemma's Hospice. Make sure you make a difference to someone's life this year and ensure St. Gemma's patients are given the highest level of care at a most difficult time of their life. To enter visit www.leedsmidnightwalk.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 218 5505. Together we can make a real difference. In association with Real Radio and Xercise 4 Less Gym.
Starting and finishing at Xercise 4 Less gym on Kirkstall Road in Leeds there will be loads of entertainment such as face painting, body art, music, stalls and more. Real Radio who are the official sponsors of the event will also be there. As usual there will be a group warm up to get you all geared up and ready to set off. Food and drink is provided to all participants both along the route and at the finish where a well deserved hot drink, breakfast snack and event medal will be awaiting your return.
Helen from Roundhay is taking part with a group of her friends as part of her 30th birthday celebrations. She says, "I took part in the event last year with my Mum and sister and had a fantastic time. So this year, with it coinciding with my birthday, I have got all my girls together to have a birthday with a difference whilst raising money for St. Gemma's at the same time. My other sister sadly died in St. Gemma's and was taken from my family far too early. Although it was the most horrific experience for my family to deal with, Lucy was looked after with the highest level of care you can imagine and I still go in to see the nurses who cared for her as they were such unbelievably compassionate people".
Gayle Lofthouse from Real Radio's Dixie and Gayle Breakfast Show says, "I can honestly say I have never had so much fun in the middle of the night! At the same time I was utterly moved by the experience; so many different people turned out for so many different reasons, but it was like being part of a big, lovely family. So if you're thinking about taking part you will get a very warm welcome and have a super fun time."
St Gemma's Hospice, based in Moortown, Leeds, provides specialist medical and nursing care for local people with life threatening illnesses, predominantly cancer, and support for their families too. Care provided is free of charge to patients and their families so St Gemma's relies on donations and local fundraising initiatives in the community.
