Saturday 16th September saw hundreds of people step out in their best and brightest 80’s clothes to light up the night for St. Margaret’s Hospice.

Yeovil Town Football Club was transformed into a hub of neon and 80’s music as the walkers set off on their 9 mile route wearing everything from flashing bunny ears to Adam Ant costumes! The walk began just as the sun went down with the walkers returning around midnight for their medals and goody bags.

Participants had the opportunity to see Montacute House especially lit for the occasion alongside the stunning views of a sleepy Somerset from Ham Hill. The Prince of Wales pub also cooked up some well-deserved barbecue food for walkers to have a rest stop and bite to eat during their night time challenge.

St. Margaret’s Events Manager, Richard Wallace, said: “The evening was a great success and everyone looked fantastic in their 80’s outfits. On behalf of everyone at the hospice, a huge thank you to all of the volunteers who helped to make this such a brilliant event, and to all the Great Somerset Night Walkers who took part – we hope to see them all again in the future!”

St. Margaret’s needs to raise £7.5 million every year to provide support to over 3,200 people facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset. If you would like to help by taking part in one of our events visit our website to find out more.
