The Walk by Moonlight challenge, organised by Bird & Lovibond solicitors in Uxbridge and Ruislip, raised an impressive £3,000 for disabled charity, DASH (Disablement Association Hillingdon).

DASH strives to empower, inspire and motivate disabled people of any age to reach their full potential in whatever they do.

The group of 55 people took part in the circular walk dressed in their pyjamas.

 

They set off from Ruislip Rugby Club then gathered back there afterwards for a well-earned drink.

Bird & Lovibond gave an award of a bottle of bubble to the best dressed group, Santander Bank received the second award for raising the most sponsorship and eight-year-old Chloe Neocleous won a special prize for being the youngest walker who completed the longest distance of eight miles.

Deborah Collins, who helped organise the event, said: "The walk was great fun and the weather was perfect. Everyone made a real effort to dress-up, which added to the atmosphere of the event.

"There were some great onesies on display.

"We would like to thank everyone who took part or supported us through a donation. We were delighted that we managed to raise over £3,000 for DASH. We would also like to thank Ruislip Rugby club for allowing us to use their club house as our base for the evening."

 

Rob Burton, Deputy Chief Officer at DASH said: "Everybody at DASH would like to thank Bird & Lovibond for running this fantastic event. It’s refreshing to see local businesses supporting local charities in this sort of capacity."

The event, which is in its second year, took place on Saturday, June 7.
