Twilight Walk weaves it way round Windsor for the third time

More than 500 walkers took to the street to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity.


Setting off at dusk, a sea of red T-shirts weaved its way through Windsor to complete a 10km route taking in the Castle, the Long Walk and River Thames.

The Twilight Walk was held for the third time in the town on Sunday, September 20.

Windsor mum Sharon Kirby, who lost her sister Sue Robson to a brain tumour in November last year having been diagnosed eight years earlier, was among the walkers.

She took part with husband Richard and her daughters Rachel and Hannah, as well as Sharon’s husband Paul Scholes and daughter Ellie Edelmann.

They wore ‘Our Sue’ signs pinned to the charity’s red T-shirts and have so far raised more than £1,700 to help the battle against brain tumours.

Paul said: “You can feel quite lonely when you lose someone to a brain tumour.

“Mixing with all of the other walkers and seeing the names of the people they have lost brings home to you that there are so many others going through the same thing.”
