Children's Hospice South West's Moonlight Memory Walk will be an extra special occasion this year thanks to the Military Wives.

The chart-topping choir will be adding their magical touch with a performance at the inspiring Memory Ceremony.  And then a number of the Wives will be setting off to walk beside all the other ladies taking part in the five mile sponsored walk.

Emma Lloyd, Head of Fundraising at Children's Hospice South West's (CHSW) Little Harbour, says:

"We are really looking forward to our Moonlight Memory Walk later on this month and are so thrilled the Military Wives will be joining us.  It is such a special evening and to have the choir performing at the candlelit ceremony will add even more to the amazing atmosphere."

The Moonlight Memory Walk is a five mile ladies only walk taking place in Plymouth on Saturday 29th September.  We begin at 8pm on The Piazza, where Pirate FM's Neil Caddy will keep us entertained before our uplifting ceremony with music from the Military Wives and hundreds of glowing candle bags as the centrepiece.  As the clock strikes 10pm, we'll set off on our moonlit walk past some of the city's greatest sights, including the sea-front and the Citadel walls.

Military Wife, Becki Fleming, who will be singing and taking part in the walk, says:

"The Moonlight Memory Walk is a wonderful event that we are delighted to support.  Here's to a great evening for an amazing cause; now I just need to dust off my sparkly deely-boppers!"

Emma Lloyd adds:

"If you haven't signed up for this fabulous event yet, there is still time to register.  Many women take part in memory of loved ones, some just for fun as part of a team of friends or colleagues, but all enjoy a fantastic night out together for a great cause!  Why not join us, and the Military Wives, for a truly memorable evening?  There could well be singing the whole way round!"

Ladies join the Military Wives and be part of this extra special girls' night out for Children's Hospice South West on Saturday 29th September.  Register for the Moonlight Memory Walk Plymouth online now at or call 01726 871800
