FEMALE staff at Ipswich-based Customer Service Direct are preparing to glow for it this Saturday in aid of healthcare charity Sue Ryder Care.

Chantry Park will host the second Glow in the Dark women-only sponsored Midnight Walk to raise money for the charity, which provides care and support for people living with serious illnesses and conditions across the UK.

Customer Service Direct (CSD) is a partnership between Suffolk County Council, Mid Suffolk District Council and BT, bringing together council services in one place.

This year CSD has entered 50 female employees to take part in the walk, who will complete the 10km route before returning for a well deserved breakfast. Walkers will also be treated to performances by fire entertainers on the park, making the event a night to remember.

CSD CEO Bridget Taylor said: “We are pleased that so many women from CSD have decided to sign up for the Midnight Walk in support of Sue Ryder Care. The Healthcare charity provides a vital service in the Ipswich area, and we are glad we are able to help raise funds for them.”

The Midnight Walk is an opportunity for mothers, daughters, friends and colleagues to gather together and spend a fun evening by raising money to help the charity help more people living with conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, brain injury and Huntington's disease.

Walkers starting and finishing at Gala Bingo will complete a 10km circuit predominantly based in Chantry Park, the home of Sue Ryder Care - The Chantry.

Participants will enjoy a real party atmosphere with a big group warm up prior to the walk and will also receive T-shirt, a glow in the dark bracelet and a goodie bag on the finishing line.

Hot drinks will be available before and after the walk, and glow in the dark items will be available to purchase on the night.

Places are extremely limited, but there is still time to sign up. Call the fundraising team on 01473 233669 for more information.
