An events co-ordinator hopes to raise more than £1,000 for the charity Epilepsy Action by hosting a walk at Dinton Pastures Country Park this weekend.
Mia Brown, 24, of Saffron Road in Easthampstead, is a frequent fundraiser and said she wanted to raise awareness of the charity.
“I wanted to give something back and help make a difference to those affected by epilepsy," she said.
"I hope this walk will help others and encourage people to support this worthy cause.
The money raised from the walk will be used to help with Epilepsy Action's work with the 600,000 people with epilepsy across the UK.
The charity campaigns to improve epilepsy services and raise awareness of the condition.
Epilepsy affects around one in every 100 people in the UK, and the charity last year directly helped 1.1 million people through its services.
"The walk is open to everyone including dogs – I’m really looking forward to getting my puppy Kya involved!” added Mia, who has also done the Race for Life event and an aerobathon.
If you would like to join Mia's walk and help support people with epilepsy, call 07712 089207 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The walk begins from the main car park in Dinton Pastures at 10am.
