Ladies, have you signed up to take part in the ultimate girls' night out?

A sea of colour will light up the night as women once again take part in the St Andrew’s Hospice Sparkle Midnight Walk.

There will be lights, glitter and sparkles galore when they set off from The Beachcomber, Cleethorpes, as midnight strikes on June 30, on a five or ten-mile route around the resort.

It’s one of our best-known and most popular fundraisers of the year, and there is still time for you to register.

ZaZa Warren, events manager at the hospice, said: “The Sparkle Midnight Walk really is a sight to behold, not to mention a fantastic night out with the added extra of knowing you’re helping support local people who need hospice care.

“It really is a walk with a difference; the emphasis is on fun. It's a challenge but it has a party atmosphere and is definitely one of the best girls' nights out that you will ever take part in. All we need now is for ladies to sign up and help us raise as much as possible.”

Registration costs £10 for returning walkers and £15 for newcomers, and girls aged 11 to 17 must be accompanied. Each participant will receive a T-shirt and a medal when they cross the finishing line. Registration closes at midday on June 29.

ZaZa said: “Flashing bunny ears will also be given out at the party, which ladies can of course wear on the walk itself. We are determined to light up the night and make Cleethorpes glow!”

Mum and daughter team Jennie Cartwright and Polly Mooney, 24, took part in the 5-mile route last year.

Polly said: “We don’t get to spend that much quality time together so it was a chance for a good natter, while supporting the hospice at the same time.”

Jennie, who has worked with patients at the hospice on creative projects, added: “Sometimes you can put money in a collection box and not see where it goes to. With the hospice, all the money is spent locally and that’s heartening. It really is such an important service for the community. That’s why I would encourage ladies to sign up to this year’s Sparkle Midnight Walk. It’s a great event, and good fun, and a chance to give something back.”
