Fundraisers take part in charity walk

A fundraising group is preparing to hold their third annual walk for the Teenage Cancer Trust and is looking for people to join in.

The Walk to Recovery group, based in Cramlington, is holding the walk on Sunday, May 18, from the Cenotaph in Cramlington Village.

The group is looking for as many people to join them as possible to help transform the lives of young people with cancer across the north east.

The walk is three miles around Cramlington, and is suitable for any age or ability.

It is £5 to enter and open to all ages, finishing at Shankhouse Club where there will be a disco and buffet for all participants.

Lesley Keogh, leader of the Cramlington Walk to Recovery fundraising group, said: “So many young people are diagnosed with Cancer in the north east, we wish we could cure them but we can’t.

“We never think of Cancer as an illness that affects young people, but it does, and they need specialist care.

“What the Teenage Cancer Trust does is make their time in hospital more comfortable and help them to be in an environment tailored to their specific needs with specialist nurses.

“The money raised is shared between the RVI and the Freeman Hospitals Teenage Cancer Trust units.”

Anyone who wants to join the walk can call Lesley on 07835 985749.
