A TEAM from a Burnley care home are taking part in this year’s Pendleside Hospice Midnight Walk.
Louise Carrington, Tracy McKnight, Mary McKnight, Susan Bradbury and Siavonne Lord spend their working life caring for residents of Abiden Rest Care Home, in Rosehill Road, but on July 7th they will be taking part in the fund-raising walk.
The Midnight Walk starts at midnight from Burnley Football Club. The ladies follow a fully marshalled route of five or eight miles before returning to the football club. At the end of the walk, ladies are rewarded with a medal, certificate and choice of a bacon butty, vegetarian alternative or fruit salad.
Cost of entry to the walk is £10 per lady, if you register by Friday, June 29th, but ladies who turn up and register on the night pay £20. Everybody that registers gets a Midnight Walk t-shirt.
Local radio station 2BR will be on hand on the night to entertain the ladies before the start of the walk, along with Queen tribute band HRH, featuring Steve Littlewood as Freddie Mercury, who will get ladies in the party spirit.
If you would like to take part, register online at www.pendleside.org.uk or over the phone on 01282 440120.
