Volunteers are needed to make sure a moonlight walk in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care goes without a hitch.

More than 250 marshals are needed to make sure the hospice’s fundraising Girls Night Out moonlight walk in Bury St Edmunds on September 10 runs like clockwork.

Charlie De-Moore, Events Fundraiser at the Hospice, said: “Every year Girls Night Out brings fun, laughter and flashing bunny ears to the streets. Volunteering as a marshal is a great way to get involved and enjoy the atmosphere of the evening.

“High-fiving and waving are optional - all they need to supply is a smile, enthusiasm and the ability to encourage walkers, especially any who might be feeling a little weary.

“Many of our marshals thoroughly enjoy themselves and return year after year, but we always on the lookout for new recruits to join the fun.”

Marshals work in pairs along the 11.2 and six-mile routes and have high-visibility jackets, maps, bin bags and plasters to aid the walkers.

Children aged 14 or over can marshal as long as they are accompanied by an adult and, at the end, all marshals get a cup of hot chocolate and a bacon roll.
