Rowcroft Hospice has announced its pirate-themed Sleep Walk 2017 will open for registration on Wednesday 18 January.

Ladies over eight-years-old will be able to sign up at from 10.30am.

This year’s massively popular ladies-only night walk takes place on Saturday 8 July, inviting participants to complete their choice of five or ten mile circular walks along Paignton and Torquay seafronts from sunset into the night.

Organisers are expecting more than 2,000 ladies to hoist the main sail and sign up for the most swashbuckling night of the summer.

Daniel Robson, Rowcroft’s Event Manager, said: “We are delighted to announce that The Rowcroft Sleep Walk 2017 will soon be open for entry and are already looking forward to a night fun alongside the seven seas in support of thousands of local families living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon.”

This year’s Sleep Walk is more important to Rowcroft than ever, as the hospice continues its battle to regain financial stability following a drastic funding shortfall in 2016.

Acting Chief Executive of the hospice, Jon Hill, explained: “For all the ladies who’ve always considered taking part in The Rowcroft Sleep Walk but haven’t – we ask that you please join us this year and help to support your local hospice and local families who need our help.

“Every pound you are able to raise a in sponsorship by signing up and taking part will make a huge difference and help to secure Rowcroft’s future and the care provided to people across South Devon – your friends, neighbours and loved ones – for many years to come."

The hospice is also inviting all those who’d like to volunteer to help at the event to register their interest at
