Fundraisers in their Onesies Raise Over £31,000 for Lincolnshire Hospice
Written by Ryan Jones on 11th June 2015
St Barnabas Hospice held their ninth annual Moonlight Sleepwalk charity event to raise money for the hospice.
The walk in Lincoln – which was just one of many across the county – attracted over 400 fundraisers and participants. The 10-kilometre walk began outside the Yarborough Leisure Centre and attracted walkers as young as 11 and raised £31,140.
What is unique about the charity walk is that the walkers were all wearing their Onesies.
Becky Otter, Event Manager for St Barnabas Hospice said that “I am humbled by the generosity and dedication of our supporters who have come together to raise much needed funds for our hospice. It was extremely touching to see so many people united by one cause and in particular those who were walking in memory of loved ones.”
Money raised through the Onesie walks allows St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice to continue to care for people who are terminally ill. In 2014 the charity cared for more than 9,000 people across the county.
