AN Oxfordshire hospice is urging people to do their own midnight walk to fundraise this year.

Each June, Katharine House Hospice, near Banbury, organises the event which usually sees people dress up for a sponsored walk at midnight.

Because of lockdown restrictions, this year it is asking people do their own walk either with friends, their dog or on their own, wearing pyjamas or a fancy dress costume.

There is no registration fee this year, but Katharine House is asking everyone to raise a minimum of £45 in funds.

Walks can be at any time from September 10 to midnight on September 19 and can be completed all in one go or in sections.

Cherida Plumb, fundraising manager at Katharine House Hospice said: “We are so happy to be able to continue with Midnight Walk this year and not disappoint the community, our supporters and stalwart Midnight Walk fundraisers."
