North London Hospice, Barnet, Twilight Walk: Magnificent Seven raise £4,000
Women will take over the streets of Finchley next week to help raise cash for an “inspiring” hospice.
Among the walkers supporting the North London Hospice, which is based in Golders Green Road, North Finchley, and Barrowell Green, Winchmore Hill, Enfield, will be the Magnificent Seven.
The group, made up of hospice volunteers Maddie Rayner, her grandchildren Kasey, 16, Georgie, 15 and Bea, 13, and Sue Friedman, Erica Richards and Marilyn Kanter, have already raised £4,000.
Retired nursery nurse teacher Ms Rayner said: “It’s an inspiring place, we’ve done a lot of fundraising events for them and they’re in dire need of the money.
“This is something for all ladies to enjoy and it’s nice to see the grandchildren getting involved too.
“We weren’t really sure how much we’d raise and we didn’t set a target, obviously we are really pleased with how much we’ve made so far.”
All money raised will go to the hospice, which provides palliative care for people with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses.
The Magnificent Seven hope their £4,000 will go towards installing new electric doors at the Finchley hospice.
The North Finchley Rock Chorus will set participants on their way with some pop classics during the seven-mile stroll.
Ms Rayner, who volunteers at the North London Hospice Shop in Whetstone, added: “I’ve been volunteering here for 20 years because it’s such a great cause and I had time.
“It’s such a nice caring place so it’s important we support it – especially when it’s on our doorstep.”
