People are being encouraged to sign up for walk along 12 of London’s most iconic bridges in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for people with life-limiting illnesses.

Almost 150 people have so fair registered to take part in the Peace Hospice Care’s London Bridges 10 mile walk, on Sunday March 11.

The aim of the event is to raise at least £20,000 and this year the walk will include a history trail and quiz.

Carol, from South Oxhey, and her daughter Lindsey Gibson, who lives in Watford, are taking part in the walk this year.

They both volunteer at the hospice and regularly take part in fundraising to help “such a good cause”.

Lindsey said: “I didn’t realise that the Hospice is a charity until Mum started working on their reception.

“She told me about the amazing difference it makes to people, to be able to be at the Hospice when they are very ill.

“We’re both proud to do our bit and help raise money for such a good cause – that’s why I fundraise and volunteer.”

Carol added: “Lindsey and I always do as much as we can to help Peace Hospice Care. We’re doing the London Bridges Walk together this year – to raise sponsorship for the charity and have a great mother-and-daughter day out.”

Everyone who signs up to the walk will be given a commemorative London Bridges Walk t-shirt and those who complete the 10 mile route will get a medal too.
