Local businesses sign up to support Willen Hospice’s Walk

Following the success of the first ever MK Midnight Moo in 2009, Willen Hospice is delighted to be organising an even bigger event again for 2010.  The 10 mile walk for ladies will start at midnight on Saturday 17th July from Midsummer Place Shopping Centre and follow a circular, well-lit and marshalled route along the redways in Milton Keynes.

1,000 ladies took part in 2009 and raised a massive £100,000.  One of the reasons the event was so successful and raised so much for the Hospice is thanks to the sponsorship and support received from local businesses.

Already supporting this year’s event, either financially or in gift-in-kind support, are; Midsummer Place Shopping Centre, Mercedes Benz Financial Services, Heart 103.3, David Lloyd, Marshall Amplifications, Towergate, Smart Media Group, Perception PR, Lesley A Arkin, thecentre:mk and Jordans and Ryvita Co.

Paul Hinson, Hospice Chief Executive, commented:  “We are always grateful for the support of our local business community, without which we wouldn’t be here.  What better way to get involved and support Willen Hospice than by sponsoring or supporting such a great and high profile event.”

If your organisation would like to be involved in making this year’s MK Midnight Moo an even bigger and better fundraiser for the Hospice then call Pauline on Milton Keynes 306698.
