KEMP Hospice is hoping the magic of moonlight cascading through the Wyre Forest will attract a host of walkers for a unique event this summer.

The hospice is inviting women to get together with their friends for a midnight walk through the forest on midsummer's night.

It is hoped the new event will raise a substantial amount for the organisation which provides specialist care for Wyre Forest people with life-limiting diseases , and their families.

The route on Saturday, June 21 will take in five miles of forestry paths through enchanted woodland.

Beth Jackson,hospice fundraiser, said: "This walk offers something special for women in Wyre Forest. Women can walk to remember a loved one, or join together with friends to enjoy a night out to support Kemp.

"Whatever the reason for taking part it promises to be a night to remember".

Hospice organisers believe the walk has the potential to become one of the major events on its fund-raising calendar.

Those taking part will set off at the stroke of midnight from the Visitor Centre at Callow Hill.

Registration costs £10 and includes a T-shirt and bottle of water at the start.

Those taking part must also commit to raising sponsorship for Kemp and the three walkers raising the most will each receive an i-pod shuffle.

Places are limited so walkers are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible for a rare opportunity to sample the forest.

The organisers also looking for men to act as marshals on the night and further details can be obtained on 01562 861217 or email
