The Holy Island Forget Me Not Walk took place last Sunday and it was a lovely atmosphere on such a beautiful day! This was the eight walk hosted by the North Nothumberland Fundraising Group and more than 160 people took part on the scenic five-mile walk around Holy Island. So far the walk has raised over £2000 with sponsorship money still to come in. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this amazing total and for helping us to beat blood cancer.

Helen Tait who is the main contact at the Fundraising Group said: “We were delighted to see so many familiar faces and lots of new supporters too on such a beautiful day. There was a lovely atmosphere and we couldn’t have expected such fantastic weather. I’m very grateful to everyone who took part or who supported us in any way.”

The Fundraising Group would like to take this opportunity to thank Northumbrian Water which donated water for the walkers, Linda Crouch who led the marshals, and all the pupils and staff at Berwick Academy for their help marshalling the route, Perryman’s Buses for providing transport for the marshals, and Lindisfarne Limited for the use of its forecourt.

Next year’s Holy Island Forget Me Not Walk will be on Sunday 24 September 2017 and we would be delighted to see you there!
