More than 100 people have signed up to Walk for Macmillan on Sunday, September 4, but there are still places to join the walk.

The walk will start at 10am from the Arboretum and follow the city’s landmarks, such as The Arboretum, the River Witham, Brayford Pool, University of Lincoln, The Stonebow, Steep Hill and Lincoln Castle.

Fiona Roche, MacMillan Physical Activity Practitioner at Macmillan Cancer Support, said:

“The walk finishes up Steep Hill, which I feel is very significant to me and our cancer survivors as the cancer journey is an uphill battle. They get so much support from family and friends so to be able to walk up that hill together is going to be very emotional for each and every one of them.”

To register for the walk book a place on the City of Lincoln Council website.
