Applications for this Saturday’s Midnight Walk in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice close at 5pm tomorrow.

About 1,400 men and women have already registered to walk or run around Ipswich town centre – the event starts and ends at Ipswich Town Football Club.

The event has been running since 2008 - and our gallery looks back at some of the highlights from previous events.

This year’s participants have the option to take on a five, eight or 13-mile route, all of which go past the hospice. This time everybody who takes part will have the opportunity to hang a personalised tag on the Tree of Remembrance in memory of a loved one.

Gavin Lamb, the event organiser, said: “It’s set to be a fantastic night on Saturday and we’re all very excited.

You may also want to watch:

“There’s always such an incredible atmosphere at the football club and it’s such an amazing sight, seeing hundreds of people dressed up and ready to walk or run many miles to raise money for their local hospice.

“Some have been touched by hospice care, others just want a fun night out or a fitness challenge – but for one night only, they all come together to be part of our brilliant event, for one cause – and that’s a wonderful thing.”
