Swathes of pink surged through Suffolk’s countryside as dozens of fundraisers took part in the first Walk on the Waterside.

The event, organised by Kate Paul and Toni Coward, raised more than £6,000 for Suffolk Breakthrough Breast Cancer. “It truly was a magical sight” said Kate. “Everyone entered into the spirit of wearing bright pink and they all looked great walking amongst the beautiful countryside of Wherstead and around Alton Water.

“Everyone was there because their lives have unfortunately been touched by breast cancer in one way or another.

“I would like to thank each and every person who took part and made this walk a success.”

It is hoped the event will become a bi-annual fixture in Suffolk’s fundraising calendar.
