WALKERS are needed to take part in Macmillan Cancer Relief's annual Riverside Walk to raise money to help people affected by cancer.
The sponsored walk, on Sunday April 2, is from Cambridge to Ely, starting on Jesus Green and following the River Cam and Ouse through the heart of the Fens. The aim of the walk is to raise money for Macmillian melanoma nurse specialist, Sue Bailey, based at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Since the walk was first launched three years ago, 1,205 walkers have taken part raising £115,298 for the charity.
Those taking part can choose one of three routes spanning either 19, 12 or seven miles. The Cambridgeshire Army Cadet force is marshalling the entire route and St John Ambulance will provide first aid cover.

There is a £5 registration fee and walkers are encouraged to raise at least £25 to help the charity. All walkers who raise £100 will be entered into a draw to win a range of prizes including tickets to Cambridge Arts Theatre and a Twilight Spa Evening at Centre Parcs. The person who raises the most money will be treated to a meal for two at Restaurant 22 in Cambridge.
INFORMATION: People wanting to take part in the walk should email email@example.com or call 01223 577028.
