A 'rock stars and heroes' sponsored walk will help raise money for a children's hospice.

The Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service is staging the event on Sunday, June 29. Supporters  are invited to put on glam rock or hero costumes and tackle a five or 10-mile walk.

A £5m fundraising drive is underway to create a purpose built children's hospice at Snowball Hill in Woodlands Park near Maidenhead.

Registration on the day of the walk is at 10am setting off at 11am, starting and finishing at Windsor Football Club in Stag Meadow, off St Leonard's Road, Windsor.

Entry costs £10 for adults, £5 for children - under fives go free, or £25 for a family of four.

The charity is also launching a 'diddy dolphins' sweepstake week from this Saturday until June 20. Just £2 gives entrants the chance to guess the name of the dolphin on the poster. Any office or school can be involved.

Just contact susiek@alexanderdevine.org for a poster.
