WALKERS are once more being urged to lace up their boots and get out on the Malvern Hills in aid of the fight against cancer.

This year's Cancer Research UK sponsored walk takes place on Saturday, October 6, and participants will have the choice of three-, six-, or ten-mile routes, so there is plenty on offer for walkers of all abilities.

Among those taking part in the event will be father and son Len and Graham Wood, who have done every walk since it started 20 years ago.

Organiser Ray Worth said: "A lot of people take part in the event year after year and we are grateful for their continuing support. New participants will be equally welcome as well.

"This is our 20th walk and since 1999, we have raised £144,000 for Cancer research UK. It would be great if we could reach £150,000 this year."
