Fundraising walk

PEOPLE are being urged to take part in a brand new event raising money for a hospice.

The Walk of Thoughts is a two mile walk from the Heugh Gun Battery, in Moor Terrace, on Hartlepool’s Headland, along the sea front to Marina Drive and then back again.

The event is raising money for Hartlepool and District Hospice and people of all ages are encouraged to get involved.

It will cost adults £5 to register and children £2 or £12 for a family of four.

Walkers will meet at the battery at 9.30am and the walk will get under way at 11am.

All walkers will receive a commemorative card in tribute to the people in their thoughts.

To book a place or for more information call the hospice on (01429) 855555 or visit
