Helen Laverie Team Captain of the Walking Wenches at the Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce sent us a note about how they raised some cash for a local charity whilst adding to their step count.

Ayrshire Chamber

“Some of us from Ayrshire Chamber have been taking part in the Ayrshire Hospice Midnight Walk since it started five years ago.

“We enjoy the walk and would encourage anyone who is fit enough to do it next year, what better chance do you have to chat to your pals for about 4 hours without interruption! We have also raised lots of money for this very worthy local cause.

“There are three different options; 4, 9 and 13 miles so it caters for all abilities and there is great camaraderie and entertainment on route to keep the spirits up. This year we were involved in the Walk at Work Challenge so on average we clocked up about 30,000 steps each. Not bad for a midnight stroll!”
