Nottingham Nightwalk 2014 raises over £26K

On Friday 25th April 2014 our 2nd fundraising Nightwalk took place starting and finishing at Nottingham Forest FC and raising over £26K!  The Nightwalk the walk was lead by Sam Pinkham from gem 106, who donned a special pair of Speedos for the walk and completed, the optional dare to bare challenge to help raise awareness of the importance of getting your kit off and checking your skin! The walk was 7 miles in total (each mile representing one of the 7 people that die each day from skin cancer in the UK) and took a high visibility route around Nottingham as hundreds of participants lit up the streets of the city in what was undoubtedly a magical and uplifting challenge. Participants raised much needed funds for the charity ‘Skcin’ so that we may continue our concerted efforts to educate the UK on the prevention and vital early detection of the UK’s most common and fastest rising cancer.

A massive thanks to Fire & IceHooters and The Curry Lounge for their tasty treats to warm us all up as we passed by - a very generous contribution from them all.
Photos from the night have now been uploaded to the image gallery on the Nightwalk website, so please have a look through as there are some really great shots on there with more to come soon.
