A MOTHER who helped to raise more than £350 for a breast cancer charity says next year’s event will be ‘bigger and better’.

Emma Langley, from High Street, Winslow organised a ‘Step Out! for Breast Cancer’ walk for Breakthrough Breast Cancer at the weekend.

Along with 25 others, including nine children, Emma walked round Furzton Lake in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

The youngsters each received a medal and a certificate at the end of the two mile walk to commemorate their achievement.

Participants also carried pink breakthrough balloons.

Emma, who first became involved with the charity after seeing an advert in a magazine, has been taking part in the annual walk since 2006 and has helped raise more than £1,400 in total.

“I enjoy it every year and the joy I get from raising the money is fantastic.

“So many people get and suffer from breast cancer each year, and I feel the money we raise will help everyone that needs it.

“Supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer is so important because everyone knows someone who has been affected by the disease.

“The beauty of Stepping Out is that the whole family can get involved and you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to enter.”

She added: “I am already planning next years walk, hopefully it will be bigger and better!

“Thank you to everyone who came on the walk and to everyone who sponsored us.”
