MUSIC lovers tackled a nine-mile sponsored walk in aid of the Prospect Hospice before enjoying an afternoon concert at Avebury.

The event returned after taking a break last year with about 500 people joining in.

Singer-songwriter Nick Harper organised the musical side of the fundraiser, with Prospect Hospice taking over the reins of the sponsored walk.

He said: “I’m feeling pretty euphoric about how everything went. The numbers were down from previous years, but that’s what happens; you have to build up a momentum.

“People came from all over the UK and everyone who came will have had a really fantastic, happy, time “And they will take that back with them and tell other people.”

Walkers set off from the stone circle at 9.30am and returned about four hours later.

They enjoyed music from Gabby Young, Jon Gomm, George Wilding and Nick.
