THE annual Walk for Hope in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Mayor's Charity Fund is taking place on Sunday, April 9, at Stanneyfields Park in Neston.
The event was launched by borough mayor Brian Jones and Jane Wilkinson, community fundraising manager for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The Walk For Hope starts at 11am from the Field of Hope of blooming daffodils in the Hinderton Road park, which were planted four years ago by residents and schoolchildren in support of the charity.
Walkers will also pass by the Field of Hope at the Ropewalks, Parkgate, which was planted last year in memory of loved ones and as a symbol of hope for the future.
There will be a choice of two circular walks - a short one of two miles and a longer one of six miles, suitable for all ages and abilities.
The route will be marshalled by Neston Air Training Corps and registration will take place from 10am in Neston Civic Hall.
Sponsorship forms, with full details of the walk, will be available in Neston at the library, Town Hall, Civic Hall or by phoning the mayor's secretary on 0151 356 6402. Alternatively, you can pick up a form on the day.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is looking for people to help run its Great Daffodil Appeal in March.
A spokesman said: 'Just two hours collecting donations and giving out our daffodils will help us raise enough funds for a Marie Curie Nurse to spend a whole night at the bedside of someone with cancer.'
Collections will be staged at Asda in the Port Arcades, Ellesmere Port, on March 10 to 12, Sainsbury's Ellesmere Port on April 1 and 2 and Kwik Save in Neston from March 10-12. For details, contact Jane on 0161 255 2800.
