BEST foot forward – that’s the message from Michael Sobell Hospice as its Anniversary Walk sets off from Northwood at 9am on Sunday, celebrating 40 years of providing care and support to families affected by life-limiting illness.

More than 100 walkers have so far signed up to take on the walking challenge of either a three- or 12-mile route, which will take them through Northwood, Moor Park, Rickmansworth and Harefield, alongside the picturesque Grand Union Canal, returning to base for well-deserved refreshments and a souvenir certificate.

Entry is £10 per adult and £5 per child under 16 in advance, with a specially-priced family ticket (two adults, two children) of £25.

Online entry will close at midday on Thursday (5), after which registrations are welcome on the day from 8am via the registration desk. Dogs are welcome.
