Southampton legends Matt Le Tissier and Francis Benali will take part in Countess Mountbatten Hospice’s charity walk later this month.

The Sunflower Memory Walk is a five-kilometre family friendly event around the grounds of Broadlands, Romsey, home of Countess Mountbatten of Burma, on June 23.

Every walker taking part will receive a sunflower memory marker. These can be placed along the route in memory of a loved one.

After the walk, the markers will be collected by staff and taken back to the Hospice – to be displayed in their gardens.

Francis Benali recently raised £1m in aid of Cancer Research UK after completing five Ironman triathlons inside a week.

Matt Le Tissier was alongside him for half a marathon as the two continue their tremendous charity efforts.

Tickets for the walk are £15 for adults and £10 for children over the age of four.

This price includes an event t-shirt, sunflower memory marker, medal and the opportunity to remember a loved one.
