TO mark the easing of lockdown while raising money alongside family and friends, people are invited to join the Michael Sobell Hospice Ladies Around the Block Walk.

It will start from 7pm on Friday, September 18 - and the beauty of it is you get to choose the distance you walk with and where you go.

A maximum of six people are permitted to walk together, which meant the 10th anniversary of the popular Ladies in the Night Walk had to be re-designed.

Charity events manager Ophelia Chambers-Henry said: “We desperately need to continue to raise funds, with the pandemic impacting across all our fund-raising activities and income streams this year.”

Men, women, children and four-legged friends can all take part. to sign up. Entry is £15pp.
