Fundraisers take part in moonlight walk for Hospice in the Weald
HUNDREDS of fundraisers were on the prowl last week as they took part in a Moonlight Catwalk for Hospice in the Weald.
Record numbers turned out for the event, where walkers completed an eight-mile circular trek, starting and finishing at Claremont Primary School, in Banner Farm Road.
Have I Got News For You regular Ian Hislop and his author wife Victoria were on hand to set the group off and also completed the route.
A 900-strong throng of walkers, wearing pink shirts adorned with a cat design, cat ears and glow-in-the-dark bracelets, strode off at 10pm, accompanied by the sounds of samba band Bloco Fogo.

Mrs Hislop said she enjoyed taking part: "Ian and I were delighted to be a part of such a great event.
"There was a fantastic atmosphere and it was wonderful to see so many people involved in such a fun way to raise vital funds for our local hospice.
"We really enjoyed the walk and appreciated the treats, camaraderie and party atmosphere along the way."
Money is still being collected, but it is estimated the event has raised in excess of £60,000.
Fundraising director for the charity Rachel Holweger said: "This really was a brilliant event, with so many raising vital funds for Hospice in the Weald, a charity rooted in this community.
"We are so grateful that both Victoria and Ian Hislop joined us again this year and we really appreciate their support."
