Follow the money miles

PEOPLE are being urged to don their walking boots for a new Miles For Macmillan appeal.

Macmillan Cancer Support is appealing for people to step out around the region and take on sponsored coastal, city or rural walks.

They could simply be a walk around a housing estate or business park, or perhaps a midnight or dawn walk. There could be a fancy dress walk, a trek to a favourite restaurant or a journey to a country pub.

Individual fund-raisers can set the distance and invite friends and family to take part along a route of their choice, or Macmillan has suggested routes available to download from its website.

People can register an event online, get others to join in and then raise sponsorship for the charity.
