Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

A SPON­SORED walk or­gan­ised by an Ash­ford woman raised more than £1,250 to help fight the most com­mon form of can­cer in men. Al­most 100 walk­ers took part in Kent’s first 5k Walk for a Rea­son held at Maid­stone’s Mote Park on Sun­day in aid of The Prostate Can­cer Char­ity. The event was or­gan­ised by Uni­ver­sity of Kent stu­dent Re­becca Stand­ing, 22, who lives in Ash­ford. She said: “It was a great, but very mov­ing day. Some peo­ple were walk­ing in mem­ory of their loved one, which made the day very emo­tional.” The fund-rais­ing to­tal so far stands at £1,250, with more do­na­tions to come.
