FUNDRAISERS took to the moonlit streets of Oxford to raise vital funds for a hospice.
The walkers set off on the nine-mile route as part of the Oxford Moonlight Stroll in aid of Sobell House Hospice, at the Churchill Hospital, in Old Road.
They left St Edward’s school at 10.30pm and headed into the city before returning to the school, in Woodstock Road, by about 1.30am.
The hospice has supported terminally ill patients in Oxfordshire for 40 years.
