The Jubilee Walk for Willen took place at Willen Hospice on Saturday, attracting more than 400 people and 22 dogs.

The Jubilee themed sponsored walk started and finished at the Hospice and on their return walkers were treated to live music provided by The Bolivian Sunshine Dogs, The Fenny Stompers and Frazer’s Rag ‘n’ Roll Band along with Zumba by Exstress and performances from the Diamond School of Performing Arts.

A special memory wall was also erected in the Hospice grounds for people to leave a message in memory of a loved one. Refreshments for all the family were served in a special Jubilee Tea Tent.

The event has raised over £3,000 that will all go towards providing specialist care to Hospice patients and their families.

Allison Waterhouse , Events and Community Fundraiser, said: “It was a great day and wonderful to see so many Hospice supporters in Jubilee fancy dress enjoying themselves. We are delighted at the level of support and participation and how much the event has raised on this Jubilee weekend. A special thank you has to go to all the local companies would supported the event as well as to our wonderful volunteers as we couldn’t have done it without them.”
