Kellaway chosen charity, St Peter’s Hospice’s, hosted their 10th Midnight Walk event on Saturday 13 July. The event attracted hundreds of superhero supporters to Ashton Gate to participate in the walk around Bristol, which took them across the Suspension Bridge, Bristol Zoo and the SS Great Britain and ended in the early hours of the following morning.
St Peter’s Hospice said “Over the past 10 years we have had more than 10,000 women take part in The Midnight Walk and raise over £1 million for the Hospice. Thank you to all those who took part.”
Kellaway’s Jo-Anne Sealy said, “It was a brilliant night, we had so much fun and were pleased to be able to support St Peter’s Hospice and add to our company target.”
St Peter’s Hospice is Kellaway’s Charity of the Year 2018/19 and the company has so far raised over a third of their targeted £15,000 to help St Peter’s Hospice with their Room to Care Appeal.
