The charity has launched its annual Mini-Moo Scooterthon, which will see hundreds of children take a spin around Willen Lake North on mini wheels.

Moo mascot Florence the Cow joined Safari MK’s Charlie Monkey to launch the event with local children this week.

Events fundraiser, Gemma Cantwell, said: “We are so excited about this year’s Scooterthon. It’s such a fun event, and a really great way for children to get involved and do something to support their local hospice.

“Our events are a brilliant way to help us raise the vital funds we need to continue to offer specialist end-of-life care. We love being able to bring these events to a younger audience.”

The scoot follows a one mile circular route around the lake, starting outside the Hospice. Children can do one or two laps but must be accompanied by an adult throughout.

There will be medals and goodies for everyone who takes part.

The event takes place at 10.30am on Sunday, May 20 and is open to children aged between three and 11 years old.
