About 20 staff from Peldon Ward at Colchester General Hospital are taking part in a 10-mile fundraising walk to The Peldon Rose pub today. (Saturday 10 September)
The money raised will be used to improve facilities on the ward, which is a care of the elderly ward in Gainsborough Wing.
They set out from the ward at 9.30am and take in a route that will include High Woods Country Park, Castle Park, the Hythe Rowhedge and Fringringhoe.
The money raised will be donated to the Peldon Ward fund of Colchester Hospitals Charity (CoHoC).
