Nightingale House nurses urge ladies to get moving for the Midnight Walk


Nightingale House nurses are urging ladies to sign up for the Midnight Walk

Nurses from Nightingale House Hospice, Wrexham have gone above and beyond the call of duty after sprucing up their uniforms with bright pink, bunny ears, t-shirts and posters.

Helen Evans, Alison Roberts and Laura Ratcliffe donned the unusual getup as a way to encourage local women to banish the winter blues and sign up to this year’s Ladies Midnight Walk. The trio are urging supporters to take on the 6k or 10k walk on Saturday 17th June as a challenge to themselves and, as a way of raising vital funds for people whose lives are shorter than they should be.

Jane Forbes, Clinical Lead Nurse at Nightingale House is also asking women to put their best foot forward for the Midnight Walk and thanked her team for getting behind the upcoming fund-raiser.

“Working for Nightingale House, we are constantly touched by the stories of our patients and their carers,” said Jane.

“It is great to see some of our nursing team really getting into the spirit of the Ladies Midnight Walk and we are calling on women from across North Wales to get involved and show the world what girl power can do.

“By signing up to take part in our Ladies Midnight Walk, women from across our community will be playing their part in ensuring that for those who need us, there will always be support and friendship here at the Hospice

“Our Midnight Walk is all about having fun and there is no element of competition involved,” added Jane.

The Ladies Midnight Walk takes place on the 17th June at 10:30pm. Those looking to take part in North Wale’s ‘greatest girls’ night out can benefit from an early bird offer until 28th April, with entry currently just £12.

Whilst the walk is open to all ladies aged 8 years and over, men can also help the Hospice by marshalling at the event.
