A leading north-east cancer charity is giving individuals the chance to mark Father’s Day by taking part in a special remembrance walk.

CLAN Cancer Support will hold its Father’s Day Walk, which brings people together to remember the life of a loved one, at Westburn Park on Sunday (June 21) from 10am to noon.

On a day that is significant for many, the charity is inviting families, friends and individuals to join it and walk a route around the scenic park.

The walk itself can be completed as many times as people want to, with an option to be sponsored also open to participants.

CLAN introduced the Father’s Day Walk last year following the enthusiastic response to their Mother’s Day walk.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said: “We had wonderful feedback after holding the Father’s Day Walk in 2014 and are delighted to be running the event again. Celebratory days like this can be tough for people, especially if they have recently lost a loved one, and we want to turn it into something positive.

“This is an opportunity for individuals to come together and mark this poignant day with us as they remember the cherished memories they have of the lives of their family members. You can tackle the route once, or as many times as you like, and it is suitable for people of all ages and abilities.”

Registration for the walk is £5 and should be completed prior to the event. Children may walk for free but must be accompanied for an adult. For more details and to register, please contact Darren Hill on 01224 647000 or email fundraising@clanhouse.org
