Hundreds of walkers came together on Hampstead Heath to remember loved ones who were treated at a Hampstead hospice.

The annual “Hampstead Hug” walk took place on Sunday to raise funds for the Marie Curie Hospice in Lyndhurst Gardens.

Fundraisers could choose to walk either three or six miles around the Heath.

Healthcare assistant Elizabeth Goze opened the event for participants who wore bright yellow “hugging T-shirts” with the name of a loved one that they have lost on the back.
