Walkers set to don onesies for midnight march through the streets of Poole
AROUND 20 fundraisers are set to tackle a midnight march through Poole town centre wearing ‘onesies’.
The 5km walk, arranged by Bournemouth Learning Centre support worker Nola-Amber Smith, will raise money for the Joseph Weld Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Miss Smith organised the event following the death of the boss of her father, Bob Bartlett, who passed away at the hospice at the end of August.
“We are all support workers here, so we work to support vulnerable families,” she explained.
The walkers will meet at Poole’s Dolphin swimming pool car park at midnight on October 26, before making their way to Baiter, along Poole Quay and back up the High Street.
Miss Smith, aged 31, explained: “We want people to ask us why we’re doing it and if we’re dressed in onesies it gives us an opportunity to draw people’s attention.”
A collection will be taking place alongside the march and Miss Smith hopes some ‘really enthusiastic, drunk revellers’ will dig deep for their cause, adding: “I’m willing to open it up but if people want to join in they’ll need to contact me beforehand.”
