Places available for charity walk

5:20pm Friday 1st May 2009 Walkers have only a few days left to sign up to a charity walk to a County Durham beauty

spot. Walk the Extra Mile - a hike around the waterfalls in Teesdale - will raise money for Diabetes UK and celebrate the charity's 75th anniversary. The five-mile walk on Saturday, May 9 includes the spectacular High Force, the highest unbroken fall of water in the UK. Only a few places remain on the walk and a similar event the day after has already sold out. Ann Rowe, regional fundraising manager for Diabetes UK, said: "Recent statistics show that the number of people with diabetes in the region is increasing at a dramatic rate. One of the best ways to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes is by taking regular exercise, such as walking." To register to take part in the walk, which begins at 10am, contact Lisa Stafford on 01325-488606 or visit diabetes.org.uk to register online.
