MORE than 100 walkers stepped out in memory of their loved ones this weekend and enjoyed a stroll in the Suffolk countryside.

MORE than 100 walkers stepped out in memory of their loved ones this weekend and enjoyed a stroll in the Suffolk countryside.

St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich held its annual Walk of Thoughts along a stretch of the county's beautiful coastline.

As well as helping to raise money for the charity the event was also a chance for family and friends to remember those who have lost their lives to a terminal illness.

The six mile trek started at Leiston Leisure Centre and went via Thorpeness before winding back across scenic heathland and sandy tracks.

Laura Backhouse, community fundraiser at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “It was an opportunity to remember a friend or loved one or to simply enjoy walking in beautiful surroundings.

“It was also a great way to blow away the winter cobwebs, to keep fit and to help support your local hospice at the same time.”
