With days to go before the annual Starlight Walk, a final push is being made for walkers to sign up.

Now in its seventh year, the Chapelfield-sponsored walk around Norwich’s outer ring road will take place this Friday, June 22.

The event will see hundreds of walkers set off from Sportspark at the University of East Anglia from midnight and walk 13 miles.

It is held in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Jane Rumball, walk coordinator, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s walk and hope the weather holds out for a dry night.

“There’s always a great atmosphere in the Sportspark in the run-up to the event and it’s brilliant to see so many people dressed up, having fun with friends and walking around the ring road at night.

“Unfortunately numbers are lower this year, which is a real shame as all the money goes straight to helping people with cancer in Norfolk. That said we’ve got applications in from many people who have walked before and love the event, which is great.

“Plus the good news is, there’s still time to enter.”

Last year, just under 600 people took part in the Evening News-supported walk and more than £52,000 was raised.

People who have so far signed up include Wendy Clifton, who lost her husband Steven to cancer, and Wayne Howe, who is walking in memory of his twin brother Vincent.

Registration costs £25, all of which goes to Macmillan Cancer Support in Norfolk.
