BIG C, Norfolk and Waveney's local independent cancer charity, has once again organised their special Walk of Thoughts and are inviting people to join them in walking together to support and remember those affected by cancer.

This year's Walk of Thoughts is on Sunday, June 28 and will follow last year's beautiful route around Fritton Lake, starting and ending near Fritton House Hotel.

The six mile route takes you through woodland, fields and meadows and is a tranquil setting to remember and support those loved ones and friends affected by cancer. It is a stunning, family friendly, cross country route with a very special atmosphere.

The walk is about friends, family and colleagues coming together to remember loved ones, many feeling the walk gives time for reflection and thought, whilst also being a fun day out which helps to raise valuable funds to ensure better cancer care facilities in Norfolk and Waveney.
