Solicitors in Leamington are among fundraisers who have signed up to take part in a night-time walk next month to support the Warwick-based Myton Hospices.
Alsters Kelley LLP in Hamilton Terrace is entering a team of nine into this year’s Moonlight Walk, which will see participants walk a five or eight-mile loop starting from Warwick Castle on September 6.
Team captain Lisa Beale said: “The Myton Hospices do such a wonderful job caring for people and families in this region. By us participating in the Moonlight Walk it is a great way for us to try to support them with their fundraising - whilst having a very different Saturday night out!”
Walkers will be entertained at the start by a Robbie Williams tribute act and a live Free Radio roadshow, while they can also meet the new Moonlight Walk mascot, Patsy the cow (pictured with the Alsters Kelley team at the firm’s office).
Sarah Stallard, Myton’s events manager, said: “This year’s event is going to be fantastic and we are thrilled to have Alsters Kelley taking part. Don’t miss out. There is still time to register for this year’s event and walk with workmates, family or friends.”
The charity runs three hospices in Warwick, Coventry and Rugby and needs to raise more than £8 million a year to keep its services running. Last year’s Moonlight Walk raised around £60,000.
Teams can register online, where they can also buy Patsy branded t-shirts and hoodies to wear on the night.

People can also sign up to take part in a free skydive with Myton at Brackley (Hinton-in-the Hedges) Airfield in April next year, in exchange for raising a minimum of £395 for the charity. Details and registration forms are available online.
