Scores of supporters stepped forth to help our first-ever Bristol Stomps for Cancer raise over £5,500 to support people and mark a milestone.
About 100 people, from small steppers to senior strollers, stepped up for the six-mile stroll on Saturday, September 23rd.
Our event moseyed from Millennium Square, under Brunel’s iconic suspension bridge and along the Avon Gorge to Penny Brohn’s National Centre in Pill.
It was part of proceedings to mark the 10th anniversary of royal patron HRH The Prince of Wales officially opening the centre, formerly Ham Green House.
Our very own community fundraiser Ian said:
“We are extremely thrilled with how the first stomp went.
“Spirits were incredibly high, it was great to see the community united and we’re delighted with the amount raised.
“Every step, even the smallest, will help us make big strides to continue to help people live well with the disease.
“As a bonus, it also marked 10 years since Prince Charles officially opened the building and a group trekked a similar path to celebrate our move from Clifton.”
The Prince of Wales officially opened the centre on July 18, 2007.
