Sunday the 12th marked the day of the 2016 Cancerkin sponsored walk on Hampstead Heath for those with breast cancer. Despite the soggy start, the clouds and rain couldn’t dampen spirits, with runners and walkers of all ages taking part.
There were so many friendly faces out and we are really grateful to everyone who came to show their support and for making it such a success for everyone!
A special thank you to a close friend of Cancerkin, David Bishop, who just recently won Wellcome Image award for his clinical photography at the Royal Free Hospital, and was kind enough to photograph the event!
All the pictures are now up and can be viewed here.

Having some business’
