ANDY Pandy, a giraffe and a penguin were among some of the wacky fancy dress outfits fund-raising walkers wore on a charity ‘sleepwalk’.
It is hoped the two-mile walk, which started from the Tall Chimney pub in Swadlincote on Saturday night, could raise as much as £500 towards YMCA projects in the town.
About 50 walkers, wearing either fancy dress or pyjamas, followed the route which also included Maurice Lea Memorial Park and the town’s High Street.
YMCA appeals co-ordinator Gillian Cox said she hoped the walk, which is now in its second year, would become more popular each year.
She said: “The atmosphere was brilliant. We had lanterns and glow bands.
“Cars were honking their horns and people were coming out of their houses to see us. It was quite a spectacle.
“It would be nice if we raised £500 because we could support a lot of families with that amount of money. It would make a massive difference.”
Mrs Cox added that she would like to thank everyone who supported the event.
