The Marie Curie Walk Ten event took place on Saturday in Dalkeith Country Park. More than 1000 supporters, family and friends took part in a 10 km walk to raise funds for a very good cause! I was delighted to be there and to speak to the participants before they set off.

Mayfield and Easthouses Development Trust fun day!
