They will set off from Market Place at 10am and walk along Fair Mile and through the Assendons and Bix before returning to Henley for lunch. They will then do a loop through Shiplake and Binfield Heath before returning to Henley.

Mrs Stacey, from Wargrave, said: “We have already raised £300 and we’re hoping to get more. It’s a very worthwhile cause.”

To join the walk just turn up on the day and donate £5. Bring your own lunch.
