Travel writer Bill Bryson and local historian John Grundy joined in a charity walk in Alnwick to raise money for research into children's cancer.

Emily's Big Walk was held in memory of Emily Bailes who died in 2008 after a four year battle against a rare kidney cancer. The six mile event through Hulne Park in Alnwick raised £5,000, shared between the Childhood Cancer and Leukaemia Group and the North of England Children's Cancer Research Fund.
