Macmillan Cancer Support is encouraging everyone to walk for someone they love and support people with cancer by signing up to Miles for Macmillan, the charity’s walking programme, including one on the edge of the New Forest .

The Dorset Forest Trail Walk is just one of more than 55 Miles for Macmillan walks organised with support from Boots UK.

Set in the grounds of Moors Valley Country Park it will take place on Sunday October 14 and offer a choice of routes, two, five mile or eight miles.

All the routes follow established paths and trails through mature woodland.

Macmillan's fundraising manager, Katie Blake, said: “By taking part in Miles for Macmillan, you’ll be showing your support for people affected by cancer, standing should to shoulder with others who feel the same.”
