Big Blue Walk is easy way to get involved

Smoke in the air in Southsea was because of fire exercises

Have your say

THE family of Tom Prince have given a final push to encourage people to take part in the Big Blue Walk tonight.

It is the second year that the fundraising walk has been organised.

It rounds off Blue Day and gives people who want to support the event but were not part of an organised event at work or at school, an opportunity to get involved and raise some money for the Tom Prince Cancer Trust through their own sponsorship.

The Big Blue Walk, which starts at 6pm tonight, is a one-and-a-half mile leisurely stroll along the seafront in Southsea.

And Tom’s family are encouraging members of the public to put on their walking boots to help boost the fundraising for the day.

Clinton Prince, Tom’s dad, said: ‘The walk is a fun way to get together and round off Blue Day.

‘It’s for people who can’t do things at work or aren’t getting involved in Blue Day.

‘It’s a good healthy walk to take part in.

‘It’s for everyone to get together to celebrate Blue Day once more.

‘It’s a good social event and it’s healthy at the same time.’

The walk starts and finishes outside the Blue Reef Aquarium.

People are asked to turn up dressed in blue.

Last year, a group of people gathered along the promenade in Southsea dressed in blue, to unite together and to support Blue Day.
