More than 80 fundraisers have taken part in a special sponsored walk in memory of a well-known and much missed Berwick man.

The Stuart Renton Memorial Walk took place on Sunday, marking the 25th anniversary of Stuart’s passing after a hard-fort battle against Leukaemia.

Raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, participants trekked 10 miles up the coast to Spittal from the Holy Island causeway at Beal.

Started by Stuart’s mum Stella, walkers were piped on their way by John Lackenby, and a Rotary Club marquee greeted them at the finish line.

Organiser, Stuart’s friend Simon Landels, thanked those who took part, and the businesses and organisations that helped. “I’d also like to thank the family for their support and enthusiasm for what must have been a day of mixed emotions,” he added.

The fundraising does not stop there, with Simon planning to hold a night of entertainment in the Black and Gold on Saturday, October 11.
