ROSEMOOR, RHS's garden in North Devon, will host an Autumn Colour Sponsored Walk in aid of Diabetes UK on Sunday, October 26.

Walkers are asked to raise a minimum £10 sponsorship before joining others for a walk between 11am and 4pm, around "a garden of national importance with enchanting gardens and woodlands".

The two-mile walk can be made more challenging by exploring all the other areas of the extensive gardens. There will also be a post-event prize for the best photo of the day.

Sarah Cummins, Diabetes UK South West fundraising manager, said: "There are almost 27,000 people with diabetes in Devon. In raising funds for Diabetes UK, our walkers will contribute to our research for a cure for diabetes and help us raise awareness of the seriousness of the condition."

For more information or to take part contact Diabetes UK South West (01823) 324007.
