Step out for cancer care

Like many of your readers, I've had close family and friends affected by breast cancer.

That is why I’m encouraging everyone to take a step forward for women with breast cancer this summer and sign up to a Pink Ribbonwalk to raise vital funds for leading charity Breast Cancer Care. With five, 10 and 20-mile walks to choose from, you can get together with friends and family in some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside and iconic cities including: Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire; Polesden Lacey in Surrey; Chatsworth in Derbyshire; Stourhead in Wiltshire; London; and Glasgow.

I’ve taken part in five Pink Ribbon walks and it really is so much more than just a day out.

Sadly, every year, 60,000 people will receive the devastating news that they have breast cancer. But with your help the charity can continue to offer vital care, support and information.
