A MEMORIAL walk, which was enjoyed by people aged eight to 80, has raised about �600 for a hospice.
More than 40 people took part in the David Gibson Memorial Walk which departed the Fighting Cocks pub, Wendens Ambo, at 11am last Sunday.
The walk is an annual event and raises money for the Arthur Rank Hospice in Cambridge.
Organiser Anne Gibson, whose husband David died of cancer four years ago, said: "It was a wonderful day and once again we had great support for the event - I want to thank everyone who helped to make it happen.

The walk was organised by Anne with help from her daughter Julie and her son-in-law Rudd.
