People in pyjamas will walk around the Borough of Enfield.

The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre is a local charity based in and serving the people of Enfield.

They provide physical and emotional support services, groups and activities to all those who may be affected by a cancer diagnosis including patients, carers, family, friends and colleagues.

The Pyjama Walk will begin and end at Enfield Civic Centre and travel through Grange Park and Winchmore Hill, taking place on Friday, May 17.

Participants are invited to walk in their pyjamas, or any other comfortable clothing and this year will be able to decide on the night how far they wish or can walk – 15km or 10km.

The walk is designed to be a fun evening while raising vital funds to continue supporting cancer patients and their families.

Loraine McFadden, who is currently receiving services including counselling and reflexology at The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre in Baker Street, is taking part in the Pyjama Walk.

She said: "The Nightingale has been so wonderful to me that I decided I’m going to take part in their night hike this year.

“I have started walking to practise for it, and I do feel better for having fresh air and for building up my energy levels again. I also need the exercise.’’

"I have recruited friends who can fundraise so we can raise as much as possible.

“I do believe in giving something back.

“It’s my future as well as other people’s futures. I feel so fortunate to have this wonderful haven on my doorstep, and we should give it as much support as possible.’’
