Victoria Hislop and her husband, Ian, led the eight-mile Moonlight Walk through Tunbridge Wells on June 17, a night-time walk to raise money for Hospice in the Weald.
She said: “I am absolutely delighted to be taking part and supporting our local hospice.”
After a stirring speech, Victoria led the countdown and at 10pm, and joined more than 600 walkers set off around Tunbridge Wells, covering 8 miles in torrential rain. They were rewarded on their return by staff at the Hospice in the Weald Camden Road shop giving out hot chocolate to warm them before their journey home. The Hospice in the Weald’s 4th annual Moonlight Walk was a massive success, and it’s expected that the event will have raised more than last year’s pot of £60,000.
