Dog walking pals sign up for walk in woods

Have your say

A group of eight pals from Sheffield who met through a shared love of dog walking have signed up to a sponsored night walk in aid of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Fiona Higgins, Lise Jackson, Gaenor Jackson, Sylvia Brinnen, Liz France-White, Amanda Wragg, Angie Corner and Kate Dixon will all be taking part in the Light The Night walk in Ecclesall Woods on October 4.

Sylvia, from Norton, has undergone treatment for breast cancer, while Fiona, from Greenhill, lost her mother to oesophageal cancer eight years ago.

The walk will follow a 4.5km route, with live entertainment and some surprises promised along the way. This year’s event has a 1980s ‘neon’ theme. Visit for more details or to sign up.
