Ribble Valley Borough Council’s Stepping Out team has organised a one-mile walk around Clitheroe on Tuesday, October 25th, as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The walk is suitable for all ages and abilities, as well as those with prams and mobility aids.

Although one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, survival rates have been improving for 40 years and almost two out of three women with the disease now survive beyond 20 years.

The walk leaves the Platform Gallery in Station Road at 10-30 am and will be followed by refreshments at the Inn at the Station in King Street.

Attendance is free, but participants are asked to wear something pink to raise awareness of breast cancer.

More details are available from the borough council’s health development officer Barrie Williams on 01200 425111.
