Sign up to Lowestoft WaterWalk

People are being encouraged to sign up to one of Lowestoft's biggest annual fundraising events.

On Tuesday, June 21, Hotel Hatfield will host an awareness night to promote the fifth WaterWalk along Lowestoft's seafront to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The WaterWalk will take place on Sunday, September 18, and it is hoped hundreds of people will complete the three or five mile course from Royal Green to Pakefield.

Sponsored by Essex and Suffolk Water, the last four walks have raised more than �20,000 to help the fight against cancer.

Anyone, of all ages and abilities, who is considering taking part in September's walk to help raise thousands more pounds for Cancer Research UK can attend the information night in Hotel Hatfield from 7pm to 9pm.

James Muir, one of the WaterWalk organisers and a customer manager for Essex and Suffolk Water, said: 'We hope that lots of interested people will come to Hotel Hatfield to find out about the WaterWalk and be inspired to take part.

'The WaterWalk is a brilliant way to bring the local community together in the fight against cancer.
