Hundreds of midnight moonwalkers will take to the streets next month to raise awareness of cancer.
The Sunrise Walk, organised by local Marie Curie volunteers, will bring together people affected by the disease to walk 10km round Huntly.
Organisers are anticipating that 200 people will take part in the event which sets off at midnight from the golf club.
Angie Smith, one of the charity’s volunteers, said it was a way of helping isolated people reconnect with the community. She added: “Huntly is a very close-knit community and we felt there was a need for people to come together and think about what they had gone through.
“Marie Curie doesn’t just help people with cancer, it’s also people who have other terminal illnesses. We thought it would be positive to help people who had been left behind connect with others who were in a similar position.”
The event, which will take place on Friday, will also raise funds for the charity’s regional operations. To sign up visit www.eventbrite.co.uk
