Leather jackets and dodgy wigs will be worn by charity fundraisers taking part in the annual Rock Stars and Heroes Walk in Windsor.

The event, run by the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, will see all sorts of silly costumes being donned by people making their way around Windsor FC's ground at Stag Meadow and Windsor Great Park.

Last year more than £3,000 was raised for the charity, which was started by Dedworth couple John and Fiona Devine, in memory of their son Alexander, and aims to build Berkshire's first children's hospice.

Fiona Devine, co-founder and CEO of the charity, said: "Come and do something different on a Sunday. This is a wonderful, fun way to help build your children's hospice.

"We look forward to seeing everyone's costumes and to welcoming people of all ages, families, company teams and new supporters on the Rock Stars and Heroes sponsored walk.

"I'd also like to say a big thank you to Windsor FC for the use of their facilities and to the Crown Estate for allowing us to use the beautiful Windsor Great Park."

Walkers will have a choice of a five-mile or 10-mile route which begins and ends at Stag Meadow and takes in Windsor Great Park.

Fiona added: "Help to make a difference and support some extraordinary children."

The event will take place on Sunday, June 29.

Email fundraising@alexanderdevine.org to sign up and for your free wig and inflatable guitar to wear on the day.

The charity's mission is supported by the Express through the Together We Can Build It campaign.
