Children in Milton Keynes invited to moo-ve at Willen Hospice Mini Moo event

    Willen Hospice is inviting local children to grab their trainers and scooters for their annual Mini-Moo on Sunday 23rd April.

    Taking place by the Hospice, this popular family event sees hundreds of children aged 4 -11 walk, run or scoot a sponsored lap of Willen’s North Lake, receiving a finisher’s medal at the end.

    Families can also look forward to music, games stalls, and Willen Hospice’s very own mascot, Florence the Cow, will be there to cheer the kids on.

    New for this year is a Superhero fancy dress theme, in honour of the amazing ‘hero’ nurses, doctors, staff and volunteers at Willen Hospice. All participants are encouraged to grab their capes ready to zoom around the lake!

    Katrina Walsh, Willen Hospice Events Fundraiser, said: “We are so excited for this year’s Mini-Moo. It’s a really fun morning and a great way for children to do something for their local Hospice and learn all about fundraising. We can’t wait to see them all dressed up in their Superhero fancy dress!”

    The Mini Moo usually costs £10 per child to enter, but this year the charity are offering a generous half-price early-bird offer until the 31st March.

    Willen Hospice needs to raise £5.9 million every year, that’s £11 a minute, to continue caring for families affected by a life-limiting illness.

    Organisers are encouraging young fundraisers to go the extra mile by raising as much money as they can through additional sponsorship. There will even be a prize for the top fundraisers!
