FUNDRAISERS are being urged to put their best foot forward and take part in the annual Midnight Walk in aid of Scan for Life.

The well-attended event will be celebrating its fourth year providing a much needed boost to our appeal.

Charitable people from across the borough are invited to don their walking boots to complete the mile-and-a-half trek around the lake at Lakeside.

As well as the fundraising walk, there will also be entertainment, music and a fancy dress competition.

Each year thousands of pounds have been raised from the hundreds of people who have taken part in the Midnight Walk.

Money raised from these events continues to go towards the funding pot to pay for a £600,000 state-of-the-art scanner for Doncaster Royal Infirmary which aims to revolutionise the detection of cancer in the borough.

The appeal, run in association with Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust, is in its final lap following numerous fundraising events.

Graeme Huston, South Yorkshire Newspapers’ editor-in-chief, said: “The Midnight Walk is always a fantastic family fun event and brings together people of all ages to help a really great cause.

“Thousands of pounds have been raised before and we’d love for that to continue with the help of our charitable community.

“Make sure you sign up soon. We look forward to seeing you on the night.”

The walk will be on Friday, October 28, from 10pm. People can register for the walk now by calling into the Free Press offices in Sunny Bar.

It costs £5 for one person, £10 for a family and £10 for a corporate group. T-shirts will also be available at a cost of £5.

Scan for Life donations can be paid directly into the Co-operative Bank in St Sepulchre Gate, account number 50326679, or at the DCDT shop in East Laith Gate. People can also call 01302 349177 for more information.
