Gallery: Breast cancer charity event a stroll in park

LADIES were pretty in pink as they basked in glorious sunshine to raise cash for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.

Dressed in fantastic pink wigs, tops and sunglasses, around 100 women took a Walk on the Westside around Ickworth Park in Horringer to raise �5,000 for the vital cause.

Bonk Tasker, organiser of the event, said: “It was such a special day.

“It is a fantastic setting and people just came to have fun and raise money.”

The fun-loving walkers tackled either a four or 11-mile route around the scenic grounds of estate yesterday before enjoying lunch at The Ickworth Hotel.

All money raised at the walk will go to Breakthrough Breast Cancer which funds research and education into the causes of the disease.

“It is amazing how people embrace this walk,” Bonk said. “Sadly, everyone seems to know someone who has suffered with breast cancer, whether they are a mother, sister or daughter.

“This is a fantastic way to raise awareness and help cure this wretched disease.”
