A charity walk in Aylesbury takes place next week, with campaigners raising funds for Prostate Cancer and The Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

Next Sunday (3 April), Aylesbury Hundreds Rotary will be joined by hundreds of walkers at Aylesbury Vale train station.

Stride for all the family

Kicking things off will be Aylesbury MP Rob Butler who is on ribbon-cutting duty.

Organisers estimate the walk is roughly 14-and-a-half kilometres long in total.

The route is flat and safe for pushchairs, wheelchairs and child’s scooters, Aylesbury Hundreds Rotary has organised a traffic-free march.

Children and under 12s can enter for free, adults must pay a £10 fee and will receive a t-shirt at the end of the morning's walk.

A courtesy bus is running for entrants who don't fancy trekking back to Aylesbury.
