Hundreds of Hampshire residents take part in Marie Curie Cancer charity walk
2:53pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in Winchester
MORE than 800 Hampshire residents took part in a twilight walk for charity.
The ‘Walk Ten’ event is expected to raise more than £35,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care and all the funds raised will help nurses provide free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the charity’s hospices.
Marie Curie’s regional events fundraiser, Steph Crack, said: “We are thrilled that so many people came to the event to show their support. It was a wonderful evening and we’d like to thank everyone who came along and raised crucial funds that will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more care to people with terminal illnesses at the time when they most need support.”
Following the 10k walk at Beaulieu on August 10, there was music, fireworks and picnics throughout the evening.
The event was one of a series of 17 across the UK, sponsored by HomeServe.
