Flashing bunny ears, pink wigs, tiaras and cowboy hats were the head wear of choice for many women in this year’s Pendleside Hospice Midnight Walk as they paid tribute to loved ones who lost their lives to cancer, many of whom were cared for in the hospice.

Among those taking part was Tammy Cooper (23), whose husband Tom (25) is battling a rare form of terminal cancer. The couple, of Greenbrook Road, were married at Towneley Hall in April after members of the community pulled together to give them the £20,000 wedding of their dreams.

Mum-of-two Tammy said: “I’m doing it for Tom. He’s all right in himself at the moment but he is having a lot of aches and pains and is on strong painkillers. The hospice is such a worthy cause.”
