Local people are being encouraged to seek out their angelic side and raise funds to beat breast cancer by signing up for the Edwinstowe Angels Walk in June in support of Breast Cancer Campaign.
The five-mile family friendly walk takes place on Sunday 3rd June around Sherwood Forest and it is hoped that over 200 people will take part. Each walker is also being encouraged to wear fancy dress to help create a trail of pink angels throughout the forest.
Julie Hallam, from Edwinstowe, first organised the sponsored walk in 2005 with her friend, Mandy, who had breast cancer. Mandy passed away in 2006 and has continued to host the walk each year in her memory. To date the walk has raised over £86,000.
Julie said “The walk isn’t a race and there’s no registration fee. Just turn up, bring your friends and don’t forget your fairy wings!”
The walk starts at 10am at the Edwinstowe cricket pavilion and is free to take part, however every walker is encouraged to raise a minimum sponsorship of £20. Following the walk, people are encouraged to join the Edwinstowe Parish Council ‘Big Lunch’ event in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and bring a picnic.
