“The Moo is always an important event for the Hospice, which is why we’ve proudly been the headline sponsors for six years running. Willen Hospice is close

to many people’s hearts in Milton Keynes, so I urge everyone to ‘Show their Mooves’ and sign up for the Midnight Moo on the 15th July.”

Nikki Poole, Willen Hospice Community Fundraising & Events Manager, said: “The Midnight Moo is one of our most popular events, and we can’t wait to hold our biggest and best one yet.

"It is a wonderful opportunity for local people to walk in memory of a loved one and celebrate their lives, or to just take part and have a fun evening out with friends and family.

”It’s going to be a fantastic night. There will be music playing, goodie bags, a fun warm up, and our mascot Florence the Cow will be there too. We can’t thank

Specsavers enough for supporting us once again by being our headline sponsors, as well as all of the other local organisations who are helping to make the event possible.”

Participants can receive 15% off the entry fee until May 1. The fee includes a fundraising guide, sponsorship forms, in-memory bibs, and the much-anticipated

annual ‘Moo’ t-shirt and medal.
