Give me the moonlight: Nicola will be walking across London

THE majority of us will be tucked up in bed when Hillingdon Hospital worker Nicola Wildman starts a marathon walk across London helping raise money for cancer.

Nicola will be one of thousands of people taking part in Shine, a 26.2-mile night walk across London, taking in many of the capital’s iconic landmarks on September 27-28.

The annual event attracts hundreds of people of all ages and Nicola has been clocking up the miles in training, including climbing Snowdon twice in the past month.

“It does seem a long way, but I’m confident I can do it,” says the 30 year-old whose father-in-law died of cancer three years ago and who has a friend currently battling the disease.

“I’ve been going out at lunchtime and in the evenings, building up my mileage around my home in High Wycombe,” she said. “It’s very hilly compared to London, so it should make things easier on the night.”

The walk starts at Southwark Park at 10.15pm and finishes at Old Billingsgate after taking in sights including The Globe Theatre, the London Eye, Nelson’s Column and the Tower of London.
