THESE energetic chaps are the first men to sign up to a fundraising walk usually for ladies only.

The Hospice of St Francis has opened up its annual Midnight Walk to men.

It is a family affair for retired engineer Alun Young, 58, and his son-in-law Eric Juster, 28, who have agreed to take part.

They will be joined by Alun’s daughter Laura Young and Alun’s mother-in-law Margaret Smith.

Walkers will hike from Hemel Hempstead to Berkhamsted and back on Saturday, June 11. Participants can complete the full 11 mile route or do a shorter five miles.

Eric, from Grovehill in Hemel Hempstead said: “It’s a bit of fun and I would definitely urge other blokes to get involved too.”

Also, volunteer distributors are needed to put posters up in Amersham, Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans and Harpenden.

To offer your support, call the hospice fundraising team on 01442 869555 or to take part visit the website at www.walkwiththestars.org.uk.
