Debbie and family all set for Girls Night Out challenge
Among those taking part in this year’s Jaynic’s Girls Night Out event will be the Hospice’s catering manager Debbie Hurren.
Usually part of the team responsible for making sure a warm drink and tasty treat awaits those crossing the finish line, this year Debbie alongside her daughter, two sisters and two nieces will be undertaking her own challenge in memory of her mum.
Debbie said: “We lost mum last April to a heart attack. The Hospice was mum’s charity and she always supported it whenever she could, I also know how important it is that we keep raising funds for the Hospice.
“Every year people ask me if I will be taking part and I always say I can’t because I’ll be working on the hill so this year it’s my opportunity.
“It will also be good to be able to do it with my family, we’ll all have our pyjamas on and will be walking a six-mile route around Knettishall Heath. I think my older sister thinks it’s a bit mad, but she’s game for it. We all just want to support the Hospice.”
Running slightly differently this year, the walk, which is supported by main sponsor Suffolk focused developer Jaynic as well as Treatt, Chassis Cab, Greene King, Sanofi and Countryside the developer of Marham Park in Bury St Edmunds, will see fundraisers pull on their bunny ears and pyjamas and take on their own challenge closer to home.
