A midnight walk which raises money for a hospice charity has been announced as the most successful in the country.

St Luke’s Hospice Midnight Walk topped a national league table published by Help the Hospices.

In last year’s event, 1,424 walkers helped by 200 volunteers made their way through the streets of Harrow, raising a total of £213,000.

The event ranked highest among 60 hospice walks and raised £25,000 more than any other in the UK for the year.

Preparations are already under way for this year’s walk which will take place on Friday June 25.
