A Renfrewshire charity is launching its first-ever memory walk next month.

Fundraisers at St Vincent's Hospice, in Howwood, have organised the special event, which will take place on Sunday, August 27.

The Forget Me Not Memory Walk will take place at Castle Semple Loch, with participants able to choose between a 5k and 10k route.

Dogs are also able to take part in the event, which is raising funds to help St Vincent's Hospice provide palliative care for people across Renfrewshire.

A spokesperson said: "When you cross the finish line, celebrate with your medal, knowing that you have walked to give patients and families affected by life-limiting illness the care and support that they deserve.

"Forget Me Not Memory Walk is a fundraising charity event, as we need to raise £2.1 million to continue providing vital end-of-life care for local people and their families. 

"Any sponsorship raised will really make a difference."
