The Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice in Moggerhanger is urging people to join its Walk to Remember next month - to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died.

The 5k Bedford event - on Sunday, October 10 - will also raise funds for the hospice in Moggerhanger which provides compassionate palliative care for people with life-limiting conditions as well as supporting their families.

You'll meet at Everards Meadow in Bedford and warm up with a fun zumba session which will be followed by a 5k walk along the Embankment and through Russell Park.

Walkers will be able to place a poignant dedication along the way in honour of those special to them.

If you do it by midnight on Sunday (September 12) you can buy early bird ticket at £10 for adults and £5 for children (five to 16 years).

After that date, standard tickets will be £12 for adults and £7 for children. Under fives go free.
