A charity wake, or charity wake field, is a private gathering that takes place every year to raise money for charities.
The participants are usually women, many of them working in a charity.
The charity wakes usually happen in private homes.
The wake is held in the middle of the night.
It can be attended by people of all ages and religions, and it usually attracts up to a thousand people.
There are also private events held during the wake, usually held at night.
The charities bureau of the Times of Indian said the wake is often attended by children and adults from all walks of life.
But the wake field itself is private.
Its only purpose is to raise funds for a charity, the bureau said.
There are different types of wake fields, the Times said, but usually the event is held at a private home, which is often home to a single family or single man.
In the wake fields held in private residences, the participants usually go for a swim or a walk around the house.
