A CHARITY walk for Queen Alexandra Hospital is taking place this weekend.

This year’s Ward Walk is on Sunday and hundreds of people are expected to join in to raise funds for the Cosham site.

Participants will be walking either 5km or 10km at Staunton Country Park, in Havant.

All money raised will go towards supporting a ward or department at QA Hospital.

Victoria Greenshields, fundraising manager for Portsmouth Hospitals Charity, said: ‘The Ward Walk will be a fantastic opportunity for the community to rally together in support of their hospital.

‘The event will be a fun-filled day with all funds raised being used to benefit current and future patients being treated within Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.’

The event is only £2 per person to register and a suggested minimum sponsorship of just £15.

There will be a warm-up by fitness instructors from David Lloyd, a cake sale for the charity as well as a refreshment stall, snack bar, picnic area and free parking.

Staunton Country Park is also offering 50 per cent off Staunton Farm tickets on the day for those taking part.

The walk is at 10am.
