Lesley's midnight walk for Florence Nightingale Hospice

On 22nd June, while you were sleeping (unless you were on the route) myself, 699 men, women, children and one dog did the Midnight Walk for Florence Nightingale Hospice.  We warmed up at the college, purchased flashing rabbits’ ears, and set off at midnight.  It was a great sight along the Bourg Walk bridge with all the flashing lights from ears etc.!  After crossing Walton Street we did a circular walk along Wendover Road, through Bedgrove, back along Tring Road and back to the Waterside theatre to a very welcome ice cream with Jaffa cakes.  The five miles ended there.  From here we walked past B&Q on Park Street doing another circular walk taking in Elmhurst, Weedon Road, Bicester Road, Rabans Lane, Fairford Leys, back to Bicester Road, Gatehouse and then back to the college. We were very well supported with volunteer marshals all along the route with encouragement and water bottles, tooting cars and a couple of people who had had a good night out.

We arrived back at the college at 3am to a round of applause, a medal and a welcome bacon roll and cup of tea. It was a moving experience and I hopefully will do it again.

I raised £140 thanks to all my very good friends, family, and work colleagues.
