STOWE House will be playing host to an event next month to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Walk 10 is being held on July 27 and is one of 25 being held across the country. The 10km walk will take place in the evening and will finish at 10pm to mark the time when most Marie Curie nurses start their night shift.

Steph Johnson, events manager for the Midlands and Anglia region at Marie Curie Cancer Care said: “Walk Ten is a wonderful occasion, giving people the chance to walk 10k in stunning surroundings, but also to recognise the dedication of Marie Curie Nurses.

“There’s a festival atmosphere at the end of every walk, making it a really fun evening to spend with friends and family.

“Last year, Walk Ten participants helped raise over £400,000 for the charity, enabling Marie Curie Nurses to provide 20,000 hours of free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in Marie Curie Hospices.

“We hope as many people as possible will sign up for Walk Ten at Stowe House to help even more terminally ill patients and their families.”

The event is supported by home emergency insurer HomeServe. Registration is £10 per person, children go free.
