Spring walk at Chenies Manor to raise money for people affected by cancer and other serious conditions
A medical charity at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood is calling on local people to join its Spring Walk to raise money for new scanners and medical research.
The event is organised by Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, an independent medical charity that provides life changing CT, MRI and PET/CT scans used to diagnose and monitor mainly cancer but also other serious conditions. The money is used to make sure patients can benefit from leading edge scanning equipment and furthers medical research into cancer and other conditions.
The 10km circular walk, which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, 1 May, starts at Chenies Manor (WD3 6ER) and has beautiful views of the Chess Valley.
* To book your place, ring 01923 844290; entry is £8 in advance (£10 on the day) and includes free admission to Chenies Manor Tulip Gardens; registration begins at 10am and walk starts at 11am. Wear suitable clothing and footwear (route not suitable for pushchairs). All proceeds go to charity.
