Bring on the pink: Lincoln Moonlight Walk to return for eleventh year

All in aid of St Barnabas Hospice.

The Moonlight Walk is back for 2018 and this year St Barnabas Hospice has chosen a new Lincoln location.

Now in its eleventh year, the Moonlight Walk will take place on Saturday, June 9 at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, with around 2,000 people dressed in pink expected to take part.

The Moonlight Walk is a flagship event for St Barnabas to raise funds for hospice care, and features at 10k route around the city.

Registration will open at 8pm, and people will be able to take part in a warm-up led by Curves of Lincoln.

Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase merchandise, professional photos and face painting before the walks begin. They will also receive a free event t-shirt and finishers’ medal on the night.

Each participant will get a bacon, sausage or veggie bap and hot drink once the walk has finished.

This year, a second event will also take place on Saturday, September 15, at Borderville Sports Centre, Stamford.

Amelia Mochan, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas, said: “Although the Moonlight Walk used to be ‘ladies only’, this year St Barnabas is encouraging the public to grab the girls and bring the blokes to what promises to be the biggest and best Moonlight Walk to date.

“Don’t worry ladies, you still get to wear those bright pink t-shirts, and local face painters and accessory stalls will be there to add all the sparkle you need!”

Laura Stones, Event Fundraiser for St Barnabas, added: “The money raised from these events will be crucial in helping St Barnabas provide care and support to people in Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, and their families and carers.”

Early bird registration is only £12 for adults and £7 for children (aged 11+ only), with each
adult being asked to raise a minimum of £20. The early bird registration will end on Friday, April 6.
