Thousands of walkers took part in the Marsden March yesterday raising thousands of pounds for the Royal Marsden Cancer charity.

More than 2000 people walked the 14 miles from the Chelsea hospital to the Sutton hospital, to show their support and honour loved ones affected by cancer.

The walkers were joined by key members of hospital staff as well as celebrities including Gary Lineker, Russ Kane and Larry Lamb.

Local MP Paul Burstow welcomed walkers as they crossed the finish line and handed them their medals.

A big thank you party was thrown at the end of the day for all participants, to celebrate their achievement and the fun day out.

All of the funds raised go directly to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which supports the work of the Royal Marsden.

Amanda Heaton, Community Fundraising and Development Manager, from The Royal Marsden said: “All of the money raised will make a real and tangible difference to the 40,000 patients we see every year.”
