Hastings Borough Bonfire is holding their annual Ladies Wot Walk fund raising event on Sunday 19th May 2013. This is one NOT to miss!! It is the biggest, funniest and most outrageous fundraising event of the year. Ever felt like a bit of cross dressing? Then read on – this is the event for you!
Every year the members of the Bonfire Society and many of the Section 5 drummers too, dress up in their best frocks and shake their collection buckets from the BoPeep to the Stag. Not that outrageous I here you say, well there is a catch. It’s the MEN that wear the frocks and the ladies wear, well anything really in a gentlemanly fashion.
This is a fundraising event, so you will need to pay a £5 entry fee to walk the walk and of course collect as many sponsors as you can. Every penny helps. Download a sponsor form.
Hastings Borough Bonfire Society is self-funding, so in order for us to put on the fabulous display in October we need to raise the funds. So find yourself an outrageous outfit, collect some sponsors and meet us at the BoPeep at 12 0’clock for a brilliant day of drinking, collecting and amazing the unsuspecting public as we strut our stuff along the prom! Once we get to the Stag Inn, The fabulous Toby will once again be providing some ‘Toby style’ entertainment (if you came last year you know what I mean)
