The ‘spice girls’ were among the dozens of crazily dressed men who took part in Walk A Mile In Her Shoes in Bedford Park at the weekend.

Bedford Mayor Dave Hodgson is pictured with all those who made it to the finish line on Sunday, August 24.

The organisers are hoping to beat last year’s fundraising total of £12,500, in aid of Bedford Daycare Hospice.

A spokeswoman for the walk said: “ The event was fabulous!

“ We are hoping to have raised as much as last year!

“The weather was great and the turnout of family and friends to support their men was brilliant too.

“A special thank you to The Window at the pavilion in the park who sponsored our event and gave out free refreshments to all our men who took part.”

North Bedfordshire Hospice Care (Bedford Daycare Hospice) is an independent charity working with other organisations providing care for those with life threatening illness.
