There’s still time to enter this year’s Crazy Hats walk and help to raise cash for the county’s breast cancer services.

The annual event will take place at Wicksteed Park on Sunday, March 24, at 10.30am.

Now in its 11th year, the fundraiser for the Wellingborough-based breast cancer charity usually attracts up to 2,800 participants each time.

All of the money raised goes towards services for county breast cancer patients.

Glennis Hooper, who founded the charity in 2002 after being diagnosed with breast cancer, said: “The official closing date for entries was Friday, March 15, but we do get late entries.

“Sadly, a lot of people leave things until the last minute.

“This year we are trying to get 3,000 people to come along.

“It’s a couple of hours a year to help maintain the breast cancer services in this county and not let them slip.

“We want to have the best facilities.”

Amanda Ford, 42, of Kettering, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and will be taking part in the walk with a group of friends.

She said: “I decided to give something back. There’s going to be 10 of us doing it together and it will be the first time that I have ever done the walk. I am looking forward to it.”
