DASH for Dad returns this Father's Day to raise money for a child bereavement charity in Saunderton.

It will be the fourth annual race at the West Wycombe Park on June 15, which raises money for Child Bereavement UK.

It is aimed at all the family with 1k, 2k and 5k running courses for children and adults.

There will be lots of family activities to take part in after the races, or you can enjoy a walk around the picturesque grounds.

Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.

Emma Riley, fundraising officer at Child Bereavement UK, said: "Bereaved children and families often tell us that they find Father’s Day and Mother’s Day particularly difficult.

"For children who don't have a dad, or dads who have experienced the death of a baby or child, Father’s Day can take on a very different meaning, especially when others are celebrating. We organised Dash for Dad as a positive way for people to run in memory of someone or to support bereaved families whilst having a fun day out for a good cause. We are really grateful to Sir Edward and Lady Dashwood for providing stunning West Wycombe Park as the perfect location. Please come along and help support our vital work."

It starts at 9am. Entry fees are £2 to £5. For more information and to register go to www.childbereavementuk.org or call 01494 568912.
