The walk will honour Doncaster fundraising pioneer Jeanette Fish.

Mrs Fish, who died last month at the age of 87, helped found the Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust nearly fifty years ago and helped raise more than £10 million over the years.

Sunday's Mid Summer Scanner Walk is the first major fundraising event since her death of May 2 and organisers are looking for a good turnout for people who want to pay tribute.

"We want as many walkers and sponsors to be involved, take part or donate towards the scanner appeal to benefit us all."

The 10k walk around Doncaster sets off at 10am and fancy dress is optional. Funds raised will go towards a £1 million appeal to buy new scanning facilities at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
