The East Midlands only children’s hospice, which cares for youngsters from Nottinghamshire, is calling on people to pull an all-nighter to raise funds.

The Mansfield Moonlight and Memories Walk will take place on Saturday 7 June. The 3.7 mile sponsored walk starts at the One Call Stadium, in Quarry Lane, at 10pm. Walkers will make their way around the residential streets before finishing back at the football club. Those taking on the night time adventure will be treated to a midnight feast after the walk.

All money raised at the event will be split between Rainbows and John Eastwood Hospice. This year Rainbows is celebrating 20 years of care and to commemorate its birthday, the charity wants to raise an extra £100,000 over the year to help fund more children’s nurses.

Including those from Nottinghamshire, Rainbows cares for 288 children and young people with life-limiting and terminal illnesses as well as supporting 249 bereaved families and 521 siblings.

Entry is £10 with a minimum sponsorship target of £20. For more information, contact 0800 9521133, email fundraising@rainbows.co.uk or visit www.rainbows.co.uk/mansfieldwalk
