MORE than 1,100 people turned out for the 22nd annual Walk for Life for Farleigh Hospice with the amount raised expected to reach £114,000.

There were two walks, one at 22km starting at the Daisy Meadow car park, the other 10.5km from Paper Mill Lock.

Walkers have pledged to raise the huge sum by the end of July.

It will help fund quality specialist care that will make a difference to families affected by serious illnesses over the coming months.

Farleigh provides free care to people with illnesses, such as cancer.

Cheryl Bunkle, from the hospice, said: “As always, a massive well done to our fantastic events team for putting on yet another brilliant and successful event.

“The whole team is extremely delighted with the total number of lovely walkers who took part in the day and the amount of sponsorship they have pledged to raise in total.”
