DOZENS of people swapped their pyjamas for trainers at the weekend when they took part in a midnight walk.
About 40 people, including local parents whose children have leukaemia, took part in the six-mile Thomas Ball Childrens Cancer Fund Dream Walk on Friday which began in Great Missenden.
The walk raised about £3,000 for the charity but it is expecting more funds to come in over the weeks.
Chairman Elaine Ball said: The atmosphere was exciting and all walkers came back in less than two hours. It was interesting talking to some of the volunteers afterwards, many said they felt uplifted and chuffed that they had made it round the whole six mile route easier than theyd expected. It was humbling to have parents taking part whose children are undergoing chemotherapy and healthy children taking part who wanted to help.
This was the charitys fourth Dream Walk which takes place every June in memory of Thomas Ball to benefit the charity set up in his name 14 years ago when he was just nine years old.
