TV star joins midnight walk to aid Beckton hospice
TV gardener Charlie Dimmock is swapping her usual early morning green-fingered starts for a midnight walk around East London in aid of Beckton’s Richard House Children’s Hospice.
The presenter will be racking up the miles with 1,000 other women and hopes that others will join her on the night-time adventure.
Starting at London City Airport on the stroke of midnight on June 25 the walk will weave its way round the Docklands, stations where organisers will have food and entertainment stalls inspired by World destinations such as India, Egypt and the Caribbean.
Charlie said: “It should be a lot of a fun.”
And it doesn’t really matter how fast or slow you do the walk as with the number fellow walking women on the streets of East London it’s sure there will be a “real buzz on the night.”
