A FUNDRAISING walk for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity takes place next month.

Lead The Way, taking place on July 18, is described as “a fantastic way to celebrate a life, and remember loved ones and an event everyone can be a part of.”

Taking place at Crosby Coastal Park, walkers can take on a three, five or 10 mile challenge and can enjoy views across the Irish Sea from Crosby Beach.

As well as music, food and drinks the charity will also welcome back its popular Pooch Parade, with prizes provided by local businesses including The Wagging Tail in Southport, Oh my Dog! Wirral and Tidy Paws Dog Grooming in Heswall.

This year’s categories are Best in Show, Ultimate Cutie and Clatterbridge Mascot and photography is provided by Jennifer Calvert Photography. .

One supporter taking part is Bob Stone. He said: "Two years ago Clatterbridge gave the most precious gift of all, the life of a beautiful, talented woman named Estelle, and my dearest friend.

"The care she received at Clatterbridge has made her a survivor, and I will do the Lead the Way walk this year and every year that I can, because every penny raised helps, but no amount of money can repay the debt thousands of families and friends owe Clatterbridge for the lives of their loved ones."

Clatterbridge event manager Mark Parkinson said: “We look forward to our walks each year.

"Walkers take in the sights during fundraising event in aid of the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity last year as they are so well attended and make for a fantastic day out. For every supporter taking part and every donation made we help the one in two who need Clatterbridge right now.

"We're really excited to once again see everyone enjoy a beautiful day out in the sunshine where we will celebrate, remember, or support our loved ones by helping Clatterbridge to Lead The Way in cancer care.”
