Walkers who took part in the Ladies in the Night Walk for Michael Sobell Hospice, Northwood, were easily spotted thanks to a donation from us.

We donated hundreds of high visibility vests and wrist slap bands for fundraisers taking part in the Ladies in the Night Walk.

The fundraiser, which took place on Friday 6th June, saw hospice supporters embark on either a 5.5 or 9-mile night-time stroll around Northwood to raise money for the charity, which provides care, comfort and support for local people facing life-limiting illnesses.

Despite the name, the Ladies in the Night Walk was also open to men and dogs. Last year around 600 walkers took part, incredibly raising over £50,000 for Michael Sobell Hospice.

Emma Jones, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West London, says: “Wherever we build our new homes developments, we are keen to support the local community, and when we heard about the Ladies in the Night event we were determined to help out in whatever way we could.

“We’d like to urge as many people as possible to support the hospice, which plays a vital role in the local community.” 

Ophelia Chambers-Henry, Events and Community Fundraising Manager of Michael Sobell Hospice, says: “We are very thankful for the support of Taylor Wimpey.”

We are building new homes at our Kings Acre development in Northwood.
