SLIDESHOW: One night in a onesie wonders raise over £6,000 for St Barnabas Grantham Hospice
Onesie-wearers raised an incredible £6,636 for St Barnabas Grantham Hospice, by taking part in the annual Moonlight Walk.
On Saturday night, 114 walkers embarked on the ‘One Night in a Onesie’ walk, a circular 10km walk from The Meres Leisure Centre.
The total raised in Grantham was added to those raised by 421 walkers in Lincoln and Spalding, bringing the grand total to £31,140.
Event manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice Becky Otter said: “I am humbled by the generosity and dedication of our supporters who have come together to raise much-needed funds for our hospice. It was extremely touching to see so many people united by one cause and in particular those who were walking in memory of loved ones.
“Our aspiration is to help our patients and their families make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains. It is money raised from events like this one can that can turn our aspirations into reality.”
Money raised through ‘One Night in a Onesie’ allows St Barnabas to continue to care for people who are terminally ill and dying. Last year, hospices, one of which is in Barrowby Road, cared for more than 9,000 people across the county.
