Hundreds of people from Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring tackle Midnight Walk

About 700 people completed the seventh annual Midnight Walk for charity on Saturday.

The event – which included five- and 11-mile circular routes from Hemel Hempstead School – is expected to raised £90,000 for The Hospice of St Francis in Northchurch.

The charity needs £3.6 million a year to fund itself – and last year about £700,000, or 19 per cent, of that came from the NHS.
