Women walk with the stars!

The borough's first 'moon walk' will take place later this year.

And Wigan and Leigh Hospice which has organised the event are hoping that local women will join in their hundreds to help boost the charity's funds.

Emulating London's Moon walk and similar events in Edinburgh and the rest of the country, the walk will start at midnight and is open only to women.

Named 'Star Trekkers' the walk will leave the JJB health club adjacent to the JJB Stadium on June 21 and the entrance fee of 15 includes a T-shirt and breakfast at the end of the eight mile route.

The hospice is also looking for men willing to act as marshalls for the walk.
