Rumburgh walkers raise money for Cancer Research UK

Walkers have raised more than �1100 from a charity hike around the north Suffolk countryside last Saturday.

About 90 people set off from Rumburgh Farm at Rumburgh near Halesworth mid-morning along a route that took in farmland, and local woodland with pauses at Rumburgh and Spexhall churches.

Once back at the farm after their eight-mile stroll, the walkers enjoyed a gourmet picnic which included a range of local produce and drink.

The event was hosted by Charlotte and Mick Binder, who run the farm which raises free range Bronze and Norfolk Black turkeys. It follows a similar walk in the Holt area last summer, organised by her sister Jackie Parsons, to raise money for charity in memory of their father, Evan Adams, who died of cancer.

Jackie's company Hedonistic Hiking, offers gourmet walking holidays in Italy and she and her husband Mick, brought their creative catering talents back to the UK for the event.

Jackie said: 'We had about 90 walkers and raised more than �1100. As well as that, a lot of the local produce for the lunch was also donated.'

The menu included local pork pies and chutney, Rumburgh Farm Norfolk Black Turkey, Bramfield ham, smoked trout pate, potato salad, roast Wissett tomatoes and beetroot, local salads and Suffolk cheeses, beers and cider.
