BIG-HEARTED sisters are hoping to join a late-night sponsored walk for the third time to raise cash for hospice patients in memory of their mother who suffered with cancer.

Linda Youngs (54), of Tibshelf, and Carol Bull (56), of Heath, aim to do the ladies-only 13 mile Midnight Walk for Chesterfield’s Ashgate Hospice, between Saturday evening and the early hours of Sunday, on June 25 and 26.

Mrs Youngs said: “Our mum Averil Binsley died after suffering with cancer but the hospice staff did a marvellous job with home care visits and whatever we needed they got it for us in hours.”

The sisters hope to raise hundreds of pounds in sponsors and Linda, who runs Linda’s Cafe, in Shirebrook, told how customers have already been digging deep and making donations.

Entry forms for the hospice organised event cost £10 and those interested can call the hospice on (01246) 567250 or email emily.evans@ashgatehospice.nhs.uk.
