LADIES! Thank you for taking part in South Devon's biggest and brightest ladies only night walk!
On Saturday 26th July 2014 over 2000 women took to the streets of Torbay, walking up to ten miles in aid of Rowcroft Hospice. We brought the buzz of Brazil, the sounds of samba and the rhythm of Rio to the streets of South Devon and the atmosphere on the night was incredible!
The Sleep Walk had two great routes of five or ten miles, which passed through some fantastic carnival-themed highlights, including Stilt Walkers at Pier Point, Barbara's Rio Retreat at Stoodley Knowle, and a Brazilian juice bar on Preston Sands.
An unbelievable £167,000 was pledged on the night, the highest amount pledged in Sleep Walk history! All funds raised will go towards supporting the hospice's vital work, providing care and support for over 1800 adults living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon every year, so thank you ladies for all of your hard work!
