Theresa will be maintaining her record of having never missed a St Clare Hospice
Midnight Walk when she takes part in the sixth walk this year with her sister, Caroline
McKeown and friends Julie Dickson and Ann Buck.
Theresa, of Great Plumtree, Harlow, said: “I’ve done every one of the Midnight Walks. It’s

the spirit of the night.”

“They rely on fundraising. I’ve known people who have gone into the Hospice and know
what marvellous work they do.
