A SPONSORED walk to raise money for a cancer charity is set to take place next month.

The 1.2-mile Marie Curie Daffodil Walk on April 9 will see hundreds of people of different ages walk along a special route to raise much needed funds for the charity.

The route has been specially selected to encompass the thousands of daffodils planted by the council.

The daffodil is the official flower of the charity and can be seen on its logo.

Cheryl Barrett, the charity’s area fundraising manager, said: “We are hoping that as many people as possible can come out, either in memory of loved ones or even just to show their support for the cause.”

The walk starts at Crossgates Community Centre at 11am and will finish at St Martin’s Church in Seamer. As well as refreshments, there will also be fundraising activities including a bric-a-brac.

The walk is open to everybody and whilst there is no minimum sponsorship needed to take part, it costs £5 to register yourself and £10 to register a family.

All proceeds go directly to Marie Curie.
