A cancer charity has unveiled a new walk, which was launched at Kielder on Tuesday.

The Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care Walk has been developed by the team at the cancer charity and is dedicated to all those people affected by cancer.

The River Tyne Trail – Sources to Sea walk is 135 miles and takes about 12 days to complete.

Stone markers indicate the start at Deadwater Farm, Kielder, and Tynehead, Garrigill, and finishes at the pier at South Shields and at the foot of the castle at Tynemouth Pier, plus in the middle of the walk there is a stone marker where the two rivers meet at Warden.

The book of the walk is £12.99. To buy it, visit daftasabrush.org.uk
The charity provides a free transport service to and from the Freeman/RVI Hospitals for outpatients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment.
