HELP to make a difference and raise money to fight cancer by joining an annual Welly Walk which this year comes to Hatfield Forest for the first time.

Don the waterproof boots in September for a 5km trek around the medieval trees and lake all in aid of the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity.

Walk for someone you know who has suffered with cancer, walk for someone who has been helped by the charity or just walk for fun – the choice is yours.

HRCC community relations manager Angela Lodge said: “Helen Rollason Welly Walks are a huge success and to be able to roll one out in this area is fantastic.
