Rain doesn't dampen spirits for Michael Sobell Hospice’s annual Woodland Wander
More than 100 people donned their wellies and braved the weekend showers to raise money for a Northwood hospice on Sunday.
Michael Sobell Hospice’s annual Woodland Wander raised thousands of pounds from the event on Sunday, which started and ended at Mount Vernon Hospital.
Hospice chief executive Helen Elliott, said: "The walk was a great community event.
"Most people who came were either walking for loved ones who had passed away at Michael Sobell Hospice or had some connection with us which gave everyone a common cause."
There were two routes available, one lasting seven miles and the other three miles.
Both routes took walkers through Moor Park Golf course, Rickmansworth, along the Canal Path of the Grand Union Canal, and through the woods at Bishop’s Wood.
Drinks and refreshments were provided for the walkers upon their return.
The age of participants ranged from seven to 89 years old and it is estimated that the walk raised about £8,500.
