Over 550 women walked through the night in Eastbourne on Saturday 20th May in aid of Chestnut Tree children’s hospice, raising a grand total of £62,288.
This year saw the introduction of a new 15 mile Urban Trek, a challenge that over 150 ladies took on. The 5 and 10 mile routes around Sovereign Harbour and the seafront were also popular, with walkers dressing to impress, covering themselves with bright flashing lights, crazy wigs and tutus. Among the sea of lights, there were smurfs, chickens and even a clown, all taking part and raising money for Chestnut Tree.
The tone of the night was set by Millsy from the More Radio’s Street Fleet, who entertained the gathering crowd and ensured everyone was in high spirits before setting off. Kathryn from MckFitness Eastbourne led a rousing warm up after the High Sherriff of East Sussex, Maureen Chowen, spoke to the ladies about how important the Night to Remember event is for Chestnut Tree House.
