Parish Walk medals raise awareness of breast cancer

Pink ribbons for those taking part in 2019 event

Parish Walkers will receive a medal with a pink ribbon this year to promote awareness of breast cancer.

Entrants raise around £600,000 in sponsorship each year for a range of charities, but organisers of the event decided to highlight breast cancer causes with this year's medals.

More than 1,600 walkers from 20 countries have signed up for this year's walk, which takes place next Saturday.
