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 all for such a good cause. I enjoy walking and it’s a great way of raising money doing something that I like doing.” Like hundreds of the other walkers, who can chose between a 5km or 10km route, Theresa and the others will be entering into the spirit of the evening – Saturday, July 6 – when walkers set off from the Water Gardens, Harlow, at 10.30pm. “We dress up in pink – hats and scarves and ears! It’s all part of the night and gets you into the spirit of the night.” Theresa, who works as a teaching assistant at St Alban’s Catholic Primary School in Harlow. has already received about £70 in sponsorship thanks to the support of work colleagues, family and friends. She says she usually raises about £150 on average for the Hospice by taking part in the walk. “The work the Hospice does is fantastic,” Theresa added. “They rely on fundraising. I’ve known people who have gone into the Hospice and know what marvellous work they do. “It’s nice being able to do something for them.”
