The walk on September 24 is open to organisations, individuals and families.

It is the perfect opportunity for a fun family day out, a personal challenge or corporate team-building. And in the process you will be supporting families affected by cancer who have very limited time left together.

Josie’s Dragonfly Trust was founded in 2007 in memory of Josie Grove, shortly after she died aged just 16.

It was set up to support other children and young people with cancer, and create happy memories for them and their families to treasure.

The walk will take in a route on quiet lanes and open countryside through Hexhamshire, south of the racecourse.
