Actress Nadia Sawalha joined hundreds of women who braved the rain for the annual Twilight Walk to support chYps children’s hospice.
Dressed in pink tutus, pyjamas, bunny ears and feather boas, they descended on Danson Park in Bexleyheath on Friday evening.
Nadia said: “I have met so many inspirational people and heard so many moving stories. It is vital the people continue to support this incredible charity and bring in funding.”
Among the crowds was mum-of-one Carly Kershaw, 30, from Welling, who heard about chYps through a relative.
She said: “This was my first year at Twilight Walk and I absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to come back next year and do it again. As a mum myself I cannot imagine anything worse than having a seriously ill child. People living in Bexley and West Kent are very lucky to have a service like chYps available to them if the worse was ever to happen.”
