Pyjama-clad fundraisers stepped up to raise hospice funds
Hundreds of fundraisers who walked miles around Bury St Edmunds wearing their pyjamas and flashing bunny ears have raised more than £140,000 for local hospice patients and their loved ones.
We are pleased to announce the official total raised from Jaynic’s Girls Night Out 2022, which took place on March 3, 2023, as an incredible £147,313.
Charlie De-Moore, our events manager, said: “We are so grateful to everyone who supported our Jaynic’s Girls Night Out event in March. All of our walkers, all of our volunteers, our main sponsor Jaynic and our other sponsors, Havebury Housing Partnership, Chassis Cab and Greene King, you have all made such a difference.
“The atmosphere at the event was fantastic; everyone really did light up Angel Hill. The money raised from the event will help local patients and their families when they need it most.
“Thank you, everyone, for your support.”
The figure of £147,313 is made-up of the money walkers raised and generous support and sponsorship from local businesses.
Nicola Barber, office and marketing manager at Jaynic, said: “To hear that the latest Girls Night Out event has raised £147,313 for St Nicholas Hospice Care really is fantastic.
“We were pleased to once again be the main sponsor for the event, and we are also grateful to all those who took part and fundraised.
“These funds will help so many local people locally and support the important work the hospice does across the area.”
We are excited to announce that off the back of 14 incredible years of walks and fundraising Girls Night Out will be hanging up its bunny ears, and we will be launching a brand new and exciting in-memory walk for spring 2024 in place of Girls Night Out.
Charlie said: “Over the last 14 years, we have seen Girls Night Out grow and become the incredible event it is. Everyone involved has made a remarkable impact on local patients and loved ones that are facing death, dying and bereavement.
“As we enter our 40th year, it’s the perfect time to launch our brand new remembrance walk as well as some other new exciting fundraising events that everyone can get involved in.
“We are really looking forward to sharing more about these in the coming weeks and months, and we can’t wait to see our wonderful community there; it’s going to be great fun.”
