The event, held on Saturday, September 9, saw some 2,188 woman pace the pavements of Bury St Edmunds dressed in their pyjamas and comfy trainers.

The woman took on either the six or 11.2 mile routes around the town for the moonlight walk.

An estimated £250,000 has been raised towards the hospice.

Jenny Smith, hospice events manager, said: “When Girls Night Out first started we had around 350 walkers, now we have 350 marshals and volunteers and more than 2,000 women taking part, who between them will have walked more than 10,000 miles.

“The money raised is incredibly important to us because it helps us to continue caring for people and families facing long-term and life-threatening illnesses across West Suffolk and Thetford.”
