TWO of the Fylde coast’s most famous singing sisters helped get people in the mood for walking for the annual Trinity Illumathon.

Linda Nolan - who was officially starting this year’s fundraising midnight walk and taking part herself for the second year running - was joined onstage by sister Maureen and fitness instructor Sarah Linton for the event warm-up.

Organisers say more than 1,000 took part in the women-only event and numbers were up on last year.

The Illumathon is the biggest event on the Trinity Hospice fund-raising calendar.
