A MOONLIGHT walk for charity in Market Deeping was launched by fundraisers becoming live models in the front window of a Bourne shop.

Shoppers in North Street got a shock on Thursday when they discovered the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice shop window display had come to life in aid of the 2012 Moonlight Sleepwalk.

Event fundraiser Andy Deighton said: “It went very well. It was very warm out in the front window but we attracted quite a lot of interest from people passing by.

“Most people had quite a big grin when they saw us and a few people came into the store to find out more.”

To celebrate the charity’s 30th anniversary, this year the walk will be open to men for the first time with the added twist that participants will be encouraged to embrace the Sleepwalk theme by coming in their nightwear.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are also selling a special Wee Willy Winky hat to keep walkers warm along with a lantern to light their way.

Andy said: “Everyone is welcome to come down in their ‘onesie’ or whatever nightwear they have and join us on the walk.”

Starting at Harpers Leisure Centre in Market Deeping at 10.30pm on July 14, the walkers will head out on a six- mile route that returns them back around midnight.
