End time: Various times
Venue: Starts at Llwyn Isas, The Guildhall, Wrexham
Event description: Women from Shropshire are being called on to dig out their walking shoes and join a Charity Midnight walk. Last year was a 10 mile walk, this year it is 10km so only 6.5 miles!. The marshall lined event is to raise money for Nightingale House Hospice but it can also be used as a tribute to a loved one. Every penny raised counts as this year it will cost 2.54million to run the hospice, which equates to nearly £7000 a day. We only get 19% of this from the Local Health Board so this will run the hospice for just 69 days. We provide pallitive care not just for the people of Wrexham and the border counties but also Wem, Whitchurch, Ellesmere and Oswestry. Your help, support and generosity is greatly appreciated. Please have a look at our website and if you can register to take part you will be most welcome.

We now know how important art and the essential part it plays in each of our lives.
