Walk of Love

Just before Valentines, Natalia Spencer arrived back in Cheltenham after completing her epic 6,000 mile walk around the UK's coastline. Natalia was walking in memory of her daughter, Elizabeth Spencer, who tragically died in 2015, and to raise money for the Bristol Children's Hospital, where Elizabeth was treated.  

The walk of love took place around Park Campus and echoed the one that was done last February, to mark the start of Natalia's walk. It again involved St James' Primary School, where Elizabeth was a pupil. It was fantastic to see the whole school come together once more and show such a united front. In between dodging buses and cars, I managed to capture all of the action. I even got a few snaps of local MP Alex Chalk. At the end there was another balloon release, samba band and lots of happy tears. It was very touching.
