A wacky sense of humor, flashing bunny ears and friendship are set to be the recipe for success as one group of ladies put in the miles for charity.

The Cangle Crew - Lorna Smith, Rachel Pollitt, Kerri Lange, Sarah Murkin, Maxine Pitcher, Nicola Barton, Allison Massey and Emma Austin – will be joining thousands of others to take part in St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Girls Night Out fund-raising walk on Saturday, September 10.

Cangle Crew member Allison Massey said: “We cannot wait to take part in Girls Night Out and we intend to enjoy every single moment of it, complete with pink t-shirts, bunny ears and our wacky sense of humor.”  

It is the first time the crew, who are all teachers and support staff from New Cangle Primary School, in Haverhill, have taken part in the moonlight walk.

Allison said: “Each year, we undertake a charitable event within our local community to raise funds for a worthwhile cause and each year we manage to persuade more of our staff to come and join in the fun. We decided to take part in Girls Night Out because the hospice is a local facility which reaches so many lives within our community in Haverhill.”

They are hoping their training as well as a little bit of friendly competition will help them cross the finish line.

Allison added: “We are training with our usual verve and enthusiasm and competition is rife amongst our members. Fitbits and training discussions have dominated our staff room during lunch-hours.”

The event sees thousands of women don pyjamas and bunny ears while walking six or 11.2 miles around the town.

To register for the walk, pick up a form from the Hospice in Bury St Edmunds, any of the Hospice shops, or go to www.girlsnightoutwalk.co.uk
