Tonight the Alf's girls will be taking part in the Rowcroft Sleep Walk. It's a 10 mile night walk from Occombe Farm in Paignton, down to Cockington, along the seafront and up Road to Kents Cavern in Torquay, where we might have a quick look around the caves (!) & then all the way back again to a well deserved pyjama party!!!
The whole evening is organised by Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay and is open to all ladies aged 12 and over. The event relies on sleepwalkers to raise as much money as they possibly can! The great thing is all the sponsorship stays in the local area to help the people of South Devon.
As well as raising our own sponsorship, we'll be collecting our tips all week to donate them to Rowcroft as well, so come in & put your loose channge in our tip pot. Or maybe come & have a giggle at us on the Sunday, see if we can still stand up, let alone serve you breakfast............
