Put best feet forward in Lowestoft for charity

Entrants are now being sought for one of Lowestoft's biggest fund-raising events.

Runners and walkers are being encouraged to sign up for this year's WaterWalk along Lowestoft seafront on Sunday, September 18, raising money to help the fight against cancer.

The event, which is sponsored by Essex & Suffolk Water, is now in its fifth year and has already generated more than �20,000 for Cancer Research UK.

It is hoped hundreds of people will complete either a three or five-mile course from Royal Green to Pakefield, collecting thousands of pounds in sponsorship.

The event will be followed by the release of dozens of balloons with messages of hope in the fight against cancer.

James Muir is a customer manager for Essex & Suffolk Water, based at St Mary's contact centre in Lowestoft, who organised the walk with colleague Dee Chapman.

Mr Muir said: 'This event is a brilliant way to bring the local community together in the fight against cancer.'
