As an annual show of support for those suffering from cancer, members of the Beacon Valley safety structures came together for their cancer walk.

Organised by the Beacon Valley Community Policing Subforum, residents and children participated in the walk on Saturday 28 October at 10:00.

The initiative was supported by police, the local neighbourhood watch and street committee members.

The walk was led by the Western Province Drill Squad and started and ended in Peugeot Street.

This year’s walk was followed by entertainment and games for residents to enjoy the day with family and friends at the Peugeot Street park.

The annual initiative is the subforum’s way to raise awareness and funds that are later donated to an organisation that helps with cancer relief.

This year, the walk was supported by the Western Province Marching Band, who led the march with an exciting drum line.
