A charity is giving people an opportunity to remember loved ones in a memorial walk.

St Elizabeth Hospice have revealed Fynn Valley as the location for their eighth annual Walk of Thoughts, which takes place on March 16.

The walk will start at YM RUFC Rugby Club in Rushmere St Andrew after an informal remembrance service at 10.15am.

There are two distances of the walk, three miles and five miles.

St Elizabeth Hospice’s Events and Challenges Lead Fundraiser, Leanne Carhart, said: “The Walk of Thoughts is an opportunity to remember a loved one or friend or to simply enjoy a walk and stunning scenery.

“All money raised goes towards enabling us to provide local hospice care for local people.”

Miss Carhart thanked Gareth Evans, the Ipswich & District Ramblers and Andrew Moore for organising the walking routes and offering the rugby club as the start and finish location.

People can register in advance for £12.50, or on the day from 9.30am for £15. Registration is free for under 16s.

Dogs are also welcome. Visit www.stelizabethhospice.org.uk or call 01473 723600 for more information.
