Launch of the 2012 St Peter's Hospice Midnight Walk

Players from Bristol Academy Women’s FC, based at the WISE campus in Stoke Gifford, have helped launch the build up to this year’s Midnight Walk charity event.

Women from across Greater Bristol are being urged to ‘Love Your Hospice’ by enrolling on a fun, night time walk around the city.

Called the St Peter’s Hospice Midnight Walk, the event takes place on Saturday 7th July and it is hoped that 2,000 women will take part.

Starting at 10.:30pm from Bristol City Football Club at Ashton Gate, the walk covers ten miles through a well-marshalled route around the city, which takes in the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Brandon Hill and the SS Great Britain.

There is also a five-mile route for those who perhaps want to take it a little easier with both walks finishing at the football club.

Jo Gibbons, Head of Fundraising, said:

“The last two years have been really well supported and we want to build on that success.”

“It’s also become a major fundraising event for the hospice so it’s really important we get as many women signed up to take part.”
