GIRLS — AND RAWLINSON MITSUBISHI — JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN FOR CHARITY
Oct 3, 2016
Thousands of women on a charity walk in Bury St Edmunds were kept hydrated thanks to the help of local dealership Rawlinson Mitsubishi.
The dealership, on Moreton Hall Estate, Easlea Road, provided an L200 Series 5 pick-up to help distribute water to walkers taking part in the Girls Night Out night walk, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.
The L200, driven by a member of the Rawlinson Mitsubishi team, transported a group of volunteers, crates of water and energy-boosting snacks, to three drinks’ stops along the way.
More than 2,400 women donned their flashing bunny ears and pyjamas to sign up for the moonlight walk on Saturday, 10 September, completing either a six-mile or 11.2-mile course, with the last walker crossing the line at 11.45pm.
This was an increase of 600 from the previous year, when 1,800 walkers raised more than £190,000. While the money is still being counted it is hoped the event will have raised an estimated £250,000 for the hospice.
Adam Crust, sales manager at Rawlinson Mitsubishi, said: “When they approached us asking for support for this great event, we were only too happy to help.
“It was a wonderful event to be a part of, with the whole community involved. People lined the streets, and hung out of their windows to give the ladies a cheer as they went past. It made for a great atmosphere.”
