A SPONSORED walker, who has been receiving cancer treatment for the past two years, will arrive at Chagford fire station this Saturday evening to complete a fundraising walk.

Malcolm Morrish, a former retained fire fighter, who has been receiving treatment for Non Hodgkins Lymphona ? cancer of the lymph system ? for the past two years, will do the 20-mile walk between Newton Abbot and Chagford.

Malcolm, aka Flash, has decided to undertake the sponsored walk ?as a thank you to the Fire Service National Benevolence Fund which has been a great support, including providing convalescence?.

There will also be a donation made to the new haematology centre at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital where Malcolm has been receiving treatment.

Malcolm will start out from Newton Abbot fire station at 9.30am on Saturday, setting off for the clock tower, then to Trago Mills. He will then head on to Bovey Tracy and out past Hawkmoor to Moretonhampstead.

Malcolm is expecting to arrive at the square in Chagford at around 6pm, depending on the pace he is able to walk at.

Anyone wishing to support Malcolm by walking with him for part of the route, would be welcome to do so.

Anyone wishing to make a donation, please contact Debbie Williams in the Community Fire Safety Department on 01392 872326.
