The Speech House, Coleford, GloucestershireIn November 2008, the Pink PJ Plod was born - a tribute to a wonderful and sorely missed lady, Penny Jenkins who, with her team, The Red Feathers,  raised an incredible amount of money for Cancer Research UK before losing her own personal battle with cancer.  The walk was an amazing success - over 160 people took part and over 6,000 was raised.  It was decided almost immediately, that the walk would now become an annual event.

Halloween Fancy DressThis year, our Pink PJ Plod III will take place in Breast Cancer Awareness Month and everyone is again, encouraged to wear pink PJs!  As it is Halloween, we would like to encourage the children (and the adults if they would like!) to come along in Fancy Dress - there will be prizes for the best costumes!
                

The Speech House, Coleford, GloucestershireThe Cancer Research UK Relay For Life Volunteer Committee who are again organising the walk would like to invite you and your friends and family to come along and support us. Every single penny of registration fees and any fundraising monies will all go to research into the very many forms of cancer, as it is organised by volunteers and the Speech House very kindly give us the premises free of charge. There is absolutely no financial outlay, and, if you are a member of a Relay Team, your registrations fees will go towards your team totals and will kick start your fundraising for 2012!

This is truly a wonderful day out for all the family - and you will really be helping to make a difference. Cancer is something that, unfortunately, touches us all at some point during our lives, so do come along and make strides to help us beat cancer!

   

   
Breast Cancer Awareness WalkTake part

Help us beat cancer by walking with your family and friends or colleagues (and dogs!) in the Pink PJ Plod. This is a volunteer run charity walk in the Forest of Dean, and they will be delighted if you join them for a delightful stroll around the paths of the Forest of Dean, including part of the sculpture trail. After the walk we hope you will join us in the Speech House pavilion, for a welcome cuppa and home made cakes! (Pink PJ's optional).
   
About the walk

The walk takes place along the paths of the Forest, starting at the Speech House, which was built in 1676 as a hunting lodge for King Charles 11. It soon became known as the administrative centre of the Forest and the largest room became the Verderers Court. This is still scheduled every 40 days, but in practice the 'Court' now sits four times a year.
The Forest justifiably wears the title, Queen of all Forests' and boasts to have twenty million trees, which inside hide hundreds of species of flora and fauna. Walkers are in for a real treat!
   
Additional information

Wheelchairs - the main paths of the walk are suitable for wheelchairs. Pushchairs - the main paths of the walk are suitable for pushchairs. Dogs - are welcome on leads
