Walk the MS Mile kicked off again this year in Berkhamsted on Saturday with 30 walkers tackling the mile long route along the picturesque canal path. Opened by Deputy Mayor Rosie Sutton, the walk and collection at Waitrose raised £500.

The fundraising team arrived early to set up the branded gazebo, blow up balloons and get the ‘leis’ out which were sold at just £2 and proved very popular with the walkers. Supported by a team of marshals, the walkers avoided the geese and ducks and soaked up the September sunshine.

Ally Rumble, who has been coming to the Centre for 3 years, was over joyed to have completed the walk. “It was a real challenge for me as the MS affects my walking – for me walking a mile is like a marathon! There was a really great atmosphere, the sun shone and it was great to see so many people raising money to help the Centre which is my life blood”. Hannah Asquith, Head of Fundraising and Communications said “We were delighted that the Deputy Mayor opened and joined the walk. Mix 96 supported us, interviewing walkers and broadcasting for us, it was a real community event”.
