A popular fund-raising walk around one of north Northumberland’s most famous landmarks is to take place this weekend.

The 2015 Holy Island Forget Me Not Walk will take place on Sunday, starting at 11.30am.

The walk is about five miles long and is suitable for families, but not for buggies as there are a few stiles and kissing gates.

There are plenty of cafés and pubs on the island for refreshments and the causeway is safe to cross from 10.20am until 6.15pm on the day.

You can enter the Forget Me Not Walk on the day and entry fees are: Adult £7.50, child £5, family £20.

The event supports Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, which has changed its name this year.

The charity has chosen Bloodwise as its new name, after listening and responding to the needs of patients.

The new name will encapsulate all the life-changing work now being done by the charity – its continuing world-class research, its expanding portfolio of patient support services and its role speaking up on behalf of those affected by blood cancer.

Research into blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, remains an essential part of what the charity does and its mission remains the same – to beat blood cancer.
