Moonlight walk success for Norfolk hospice

One hundred women strolled out under the Norwich moonlight on Friday night to raise money for cancer sufferers.

The Norfolk Hospice held its first Ladies Moonlight Walk with women in fancy dress powering through a seven-mile route of the city.

The King's Lynn-based charity helps patients, carers and families in the county living with cancer and other illnesses and organisers were hoping to raise �10,000.

In celebration of the Queen's Jubilee, walkers wore red, white and blue, with the prize for the best fancy dress going to a team dressed as Where's Wally?

Jackie Cameron, fundraising manager, said: 'It was more than we could have expected. We had people from across Norfolk and also Wisbech.

'It went so well, we're hoping we will get 200 walkers next year. Everyone dressed up which was great.'

The walk started at 10pm at Norwich City Football Club with the fastest walkers completing the route around the Riverside, Pottergate and Norwich Lanes in 90 minutes.
