More than 600 walkers joined ‘Light the Night’, a torch-lit 4.5km sponsored walk through Ecclesall Woods in aid of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.

Charity patron Jessica Ennis-Hill officially started the event, which was sponsored by Napoleons and Owlerton Stadium, on Saturday night.

The Olympic heptathlon champion said: “It was fantastic to see such an amazing turnout.”

One walker, Sophie Hackney, aged 19, of Thorpe Hesley, was saying ‘thank you’ for her mother being free of a rare type of cancer for almost four years. “Weston Park Hospital gave my mother amazing treatment and gave her the support she really needed.”
