The sponsored walk was in aid of the Mesothelioma UK charity and was organised by Diane Morrison whose daughter Tiffany Pearce suffers from the condition. Walkers met at Sainsbury’s in Buckingham before taking the route of the park run twice to make up the 10km distance on a beautiful sunny day.

Mesothelioma UK is a type of cancer that develops in the layer of tissue that covers many vital organs.

Diane said that the group received a lot of support including from The Crown in Gawcott and the bakery which gathered sponsors.
