Hundreds of walkers took a midnight stroll around Calderdale to help raise money for Overgate Hospice.

Starting at North Bridge Leisure Centre, the walkers in their Midnight Walk t-shirts and some in fancy dress were raring to go and get started. The energy and smiles on their faces lit up the room, along with the glow sticks.

A ‘get ready to rumble’ dance before the walk made the event that little more fun.

Faye Henderson, senior fundraiser, said: “Seeing everyone in great spirits just made it feel incredible before the walk had begun. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. It’s great to see people coming back after last year’s walk.”

The 13-mile and six-mile walkers started off together, walking into Southowram with songs and encouragement for each other before they split off into two directions. The six-mile walkers headed up Salterhebble into town, while the 13-milers walked around Elland in loop, turning back into Salterhebble into the moor and on to King Cross, then back into town.

The fundraising team hope to have raised their target of £65,000.
