Charity appeal to the walkers

FUNDRAISERS in North Tyneside are being encouraged to raise money for Macmillan Cancer by taking part in 'Walk Wonders'.

Macmillan has a number of organised walks, or those interested can arrange their own with friends and family.

Walk Wonders is being backed by npower, which has developed a recipe for an energy boosting smoothie to help when doing the exercise.

The drink contains Vitamin C, which boosts the body's defences against infections and stress, and there are also B6 and potassium.

Kelly Knighting-Wykes community fundraiser for Macmillan in Tyne and Wear said: "We're all trying to be healthier these days so a stroll in the fresh air with friends or family is ideal, and if the energy boosting smoothie tickles your taste buds then why not give it a try?

"On a serious note, however, all the money raised through Walk Wonders helps Macmillan provide practical, medical and emotional support for people affected by cancer.

"We can't do it without people supporting events like Walk Wonders, so grab your walking boots and let's take steps together to help people affected by cancer."

On Sunday, May 18, a family walk along the River Tyne, including a crossing of the Millennium Bridge, will take place.

To register, call 0845 673 0710 or visit and quote reference COR2.
