Alison Parkes, fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: "We had a fabulous time on Saturday with the sunny weather firmly on our side.

"It was wonderful to see so many turn out to walk the hills for hospice care in our fortieth year.

"This event is part of our history at St Richard’s and we’re grateful to everyone who’s stepped out to raise funds for us over the years."

The hospice, an independent charity, provides free professional care for adults with incurable illnesses, besides offering support to their loved ones and carers.

The hospice assists more than 3,100 patients, family members and bereaved people across the county annually.

It relies predominantly on voluntary contributions and donations, gifts in wills, retail, events and NHS funding.
