The Mayoress of Lancaster, Joyce Mace will take part in a sponsored walk, ending at Happy Mount Park.

The Mayoress of Lancaster will be undertaking a sponsored walk to raise funds for her chosen charities.

Joyce Mace will walk from Heysham Port to Happy Mount Park on Sunday April 15, starting at 1pm.

The walk will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and the work of the Royal National Lifeboat Association in Morecambe Bay and the Lune Estuary.
The Mayoress will be joined by the deputy mayor, Coun Stuart Bateson, for the five mile walk which will end at Happy Mount Park café at around 3pm.

The Mayor of Lancaster, Coun Roger Mace, said: “Many local people are likely to have personal knowledge of the services these two charities provide.

“In both cases, the services have the potential to save lives and I hope people will dig deep and support the Mayoress and deputy mayor as they raise money for these worthwhile causes.”

Macmillan Cancer Support has announced that the Mayor will be formally opening the new Macmillan Information Centre at the Lancaster Royal Infirmary on Monday April 16.
