Around £6,000 has been raised for the Thames Hospice after several Marlow residents took part in a charity walk.

The under 14 players from the Marlow Rugby Club, as well as their parents, embarked on the 10-mile walk in support of Cliff Giles – an MRC member who is currently battling cancer after being diagnosed this year.

The walk took place on Sunday, December 13, with all the money raised going towards the Thames Hospice.
