NUMBERS may have been down but spirits were still high at the St Michael’s Hospice Moonlight Walk.
Flashing bunny ears lit up the streets of Basingstoke last Saturday as hordes of women, and a few men and children made their way around the town dressed in a variety of head-turning outfits.
Around 260 people took part in the first-ever St Michael’s Hospice Moonlight Walk, which replaced the popular Midnight Walk.
Organisers made the decision to bring the starting time forward by two hours to allow younger children to take part in the event.
Most of those making their way around the 8.5-mile route, which took in Basingstoke Leisure Park, Kempshott, South Ham and Viables, were wearing hospice T-shirts, items of pink clothing or flashing bunny ears, which could be purchased at the start of the event.
But other walkers made sure they stood out with some eye-popping outfits including two men in floral skirts, outrageous wigs and full make-up, women wearing animal onesies, and others completing the course in their pyjamas.
