Step out into Essex countryside for Havering hospice

You are invited to step out into the Essex countryside and help raise funds for patient care at St Francis Hospice by joining a sponsored walk.

The Rotary Club of Hornchurch and Upminster is holding its 18h annual walk in aid of the hospice, on Sunday September 2.

The eight mile walk along footpaths will start at the Corner Farm, Fen Lane, North Ockendon, Eessex, where there is free parking, between 9am and 10am, and walkers will be set on their way by Havering Mayor Cllr Lynden Thorpe.

The event is suitable for all ages, although under-12s should be accompanied by an adult.

The walk will pass through fields, and participants will see views of St Nicholas Church, South Ockendon, with its 13th century round tower and will also cross parts of the Mardyke, at North Stifford, before heading back to Corner Farm.

Richard Palmer, club spokesman, said: “The club is delighted to once again support the good work carried out by St Francis Hospice and all money collected by our ever popular annual sponsored walk will go towards patient care.”

Entry to the walk is �10, payable in advance or on the day.
