THIS year's Orwell Walk could be a real family affair to raise loads of cash for the Evening Star Press Ball Fund.

The fact that it is taking place on Father's Day has not put off the Morey family, who are using it to their advantage.

Fraser decided to step out next to his wife Carolyne who runs Disability Care Enterprise.

For the last seven years the Evening Star has raised more than £100,000 for the charity through its annual Press Ball.

And so father and son could get to see one another on a dad's most important day of the year, his father Vic decided to do the walk too on Sunday June 20.

Nine-year-old Athina, Carolyne and Fraser's daughter, was not about to be left out so she has joined the walk as well.

The charity buys equipment for disabled adults and youngsters to help enhance their quality of life.

Carolyne said the family has chosen to do the 11 mile walk, but there is also an 18 mile and a 25 mile route to choose from.

This year the Evening Star is aiming to get the Orwell 20 together, meaning 20 people all doing the walk together for the DCE.

And Carolyne urged the rest of the community to get involved in the walk, which takes people through some of Suffolk's most beautiful countryside.

She said: "Even if you think you can't manage the 11 miles just have a go.

"The reason we are doing it is to help people who would love to be able to walk just a short distance.

"We take being able to walk for granted.

"Just £10 sponsorship can make a difference – just taking part can really change someone's life."

People doing the Orwell Walk can do it for any charity they want.

Registering to do it could not be easier. Click onto the website on www.orwell.org.uk or call Norman Haines on 01473 215333.
