HUNDREDS of women came together in the late hours of Saturday night to walk through the streets of Nantwich and Crewe to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice.

The Midnight Walk, returning for its 14th year, saw hundreds of ladies walk through the streets of Crewe and Nantwich from Reaseheath College raising more than £100,000 for the Winsford-based hospice – making this the biggest single fundraising event.

Many of the women walking on the night were doing so to remember family and friends who were looked after by St Luke’s Hospice in their final days.

Michelle Barber, a 44-year-old personal assistant, said:” My late mum was a patient at St Luke’s Hospice towards the end of her illness, so I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work the nurses carry out on a daily basis.

“Being part of The Midnight Walk is something I am hugely proud of. It is a time to come together for an evening of laughter as well as a time for reflection, to remember those loved ones who are sadly no longer with us.”

It is reported that the money raised from the Midnight Walk will be able to fund two nurses at St Luke’s this year.
