FUNDRAISERS from across the city can enjoy the great outdoors with a special charity challenge.

The Prince of Wales Hospice’s annual Memory Walk will take place on Saturday, April 26 at 10.30am, in the grounds of Nostell Priory near Wakefield.

The first route is a scenic, 10km parkland route, whilst the second is a 2.5km lakeside route, which is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Events fundraiser Emma Priestley said: “Everyone has their own reason for taking part in the walk – some to celebrate the life of a loved one and others simply want to get active and support their local charity.”
