The Twilight Walk For Women 2018 – Bournemouth Hospital Charity

Friday 18th May 2018

The Twilight Walk for Women took place on Friday 18th. Last week I celebrated completing my 5K run in second place in 33 minutes. It was an awesome feeling since last year it took me forty minutes to complete the walk in ninth place. This year there was showed great improvement with my Twilight Walk/Run…


The Bournemouth Hospital Charity

The Bournemouth Hospital Charity fundraises in different ways for various causes. I personally, like to help through the Twilight Walk for Women. Last year it is believed that funds were successfully raised to fund a blue-light cystoscopy machine for the hospital’s Urology Department. The piece of technology helps consultants to find terrible cancer cells within patients. The machine also confirms that the cancer cells have been fully removed after an operation.


Available Entertainment

The Twilight Walk was interestingly organized. Before setting off, we were spoiled with some entertainment as usual. This year we had the presence of the spectacular Gugge 2000 Band.

Gugge 2000 Band in Bournemouth

The Gugge 2000 was founded in 1998, in Bournemouth. They were the first Guggenmusik band in the UK. This year they marked their 20th anniversary.


We had to do a bit of warm-up, as we prepared to start. I had to slide line a bit as I captured with the Royal Airforce Association flight/Bus pitched by the Bournemouth Pier.


At exactly 8 pm, it was time to get going.


Last year I walked both ways. However, I found out that there were other people who ran throughout. I still remember there was this other young boy I think he came first in less than half an hour or so. This prompted me to also run on my way and print walk coming back, hence clocking 33 minutes. My legs were killing me, but happy at the same time to have made it.


It really felt surreal.


Everyone who participated in the walk got a medal but for me, it was like, go-girl. 5 in 33 minutes…

If this sounds appealing to you, why not get in touch with someone who can explain things in detail for you. I’m already thinking of what to do next. And that is abseiling at St Peters Church in September.

It’s been a while since I have done abseiling and I can’t wait to do it again. It will be fun as usual, but most of all this time it will be much better as I will be doing it for charity.
