A SPONSORED walk will take place on Sunday to raise money to buy comforts for people with terminal cancer.

The walk being organised by Diane Wilson, 18, will start in Queen Street, Thorne at 8am, heading through Hatfield and Edenthorpe before heading into Doncaster and ending up at North Bridge.

Walkers will then return to Thorne via Barnby Dun on the 26-mile round trip.

All sponsorship money will go to the Patient Comfort Fund, which provides small items such as new pyjamas and slippers to people in their last days.

It is hoped the walk will raise £5,000 for the fund and anyone can take part in the walk on the day.
