A FUNDRAISER is calling on more women to take part in the first Moonlit Walk for Naomi House.

The five-mile sponsored walk is open to women and takes place this Saturday.

It is the first time the walk will be held in Portsmouth, and the organisers are calling for more people to join.

Charlotte Steart is the events executive for Naomi House Children’s Hospice, in Sutton Scotney, near Winchester.

She said: ‘We’re very excited about this and we hope as many women as possible can join us.

‘We have held the walk in Southampton, Winchester and now we have decided to expand to Portsmouth.

‘We have about 70 women signed up, but we want to get more than 100 taking part.’

The walk will start from the University of Portsmouth’s Students’ Union, in Cambridge Road, Old Portsmouth.

From there walkers will go through Old Portsmouth, along the seafront, before heading back to the Students’ Union.

Registration and a warm-up session for the event begins at 8pm, with the walk starting from 9pm.

It costs £15 per person, and it is hoped each walker will raise £100 for the hospice.

The walk, which is also raising money for Jacksplace, a newly-opened young persons’ hospice, is also looking for men to marshal the event.
