Pendleside Hospice ladies midnight walk

The 2012 Midnight Walk in aid of Pendleside Hospice takes place on the 7th July, and as usual the  Freemasons of Burnley & Pendle district have offered their services to assist in the Marshalling of the 8 mile route.

The Ladies, who take part in the sponsored walk and raise hundreds of thousands of pounds, are always grateful for the presence of the marshalls, not only along the entire route but also the car parking areas and the routes to and from them. It all goes toward a safe and enjoyable nights activities for all concerned.

The fun starts prior to the 12:00pm kick off and continues well into the early hours of the  morning as the final few ladies doggedly make their way back to Burnley Football Club and the finish line.

Those from Pendle Lodge who committed to help Marshall this years event are reminded that the meeting point is the players car park at 9:30 pm for a safety briefing and allocation of Marshall points.  Experience suggests you bring a flask or two and a few nibbles to get you through the early morning. It’s a rewarding night and a heck of a lot of fun, the sight of over 2000 ladies in flashing  bunny ears is not to be missed.

See you on the 7th.

  1. Thanks again to all the Brethren who have volunteered once again. The Hospice really does appreciate the support it receives from Burnley and Pendle Freemasons and I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how dear to my heart the Hospice is. I am unable to join you in stewarding this year for reasons of which you are all aware, but I shall be helping in another (inside) capacity.

    Thanks again everybody.
