PEOPLE are being encouraged to support a hospital by taking part in its annual Ward Walk.

Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, Portsmouth, is holding the fundraiser in May.

In previous years hundreds of people have taken part to raise money for its wards.

The event, at Staunton Country Park in Havant, offers a 5km or 10km walk for people of all ages.

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 QA.

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

The walk is on Sunday, May 20 at 10am. It is £2 per person to register and a suggested minimum sponsorship of £20.

Fitness instructors from David Lloyd will do a warm-up on the day and there will be a cake sale, snack bar and picnic area.
