BREAKTHROUGH Breast Cancer is holding a fundraising walk at a North-East racecourse next month.

People are being invited to walk around the jumps at the Gosforth course, Newcastle, to raise funds for breast cancer research.

As well as the walk, there will be a variety of side shows and craft stalls, a bouncy castle and rodeo ride.

Special guests will include Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.

The charity needs to raise more than £5m a year to fund its research programme and the organisers of the Newcastle walk hope to raise £5,000.

The walk is not a sponsored event and entry will cost £4 for adults and 50p for children.

It will take place from noon to 4pm on Monday, May 28. Telephone 0191-273 9977 for more information
