The Pink Ribbon Walk is back after a gap of three years to carry on raising money for those affected by breast cancer.

The Covid pandemic and lockdowns prevented the past two events being staged, but one of Breast Cancer Now's biggest fundraisers is set to go ahead on May 14, offering supporters the chance to take in the beauty of Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds along the way.

Since the first walkers crossed the line in 2005 more than £14m has been raised for the charity, which funds research into the disease.

Associate director of community and events Claire Pulford said:“Over the past two years the pandemic forced us to cancel our fundraising events, including our Pink Ribbon Walks, at a time when disruption caused by the pandemic also meant people affected by breast cancer needed us more than ever.

"This is why we’re so delighted to once again be inviting everyone to put their best foot forward this year and to get sponsored to join us.

“Whether it’s a unique venue or breathtaking views you’re looking for, this is a chance to come together with friends and family, or to walk solo, for an enjoyable day while making a real difference to anyone affected by breast cancer.

The Cotswolds walk is one of three being organised this summer. The other two are at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and Chiswick House on the Thames.

Walkers are offered the choice of a 10 or 12-mile challenge along a marked route with trained guides and regular rest stops where snacks will be provided.They can take it on as individuals or in a group and dogs are welcome.

There is a £20 registration fee and they are asked to gather sponsorship of £100.
