A hospital is inviting families to come and show support for its annual fundraising walk.

Hundreds of people will take part in the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital’s (RNOH) 12th annual Buttercup Walk in Stanmore today.

Those not taking part in the walk itself are invited to enjoy the attractions available on the day including live music, fairground rides for children and a host of stall from 10.30am.

Appearing at the fundraiser will be Olympic medal-winning gymnast Max Whitlock, who will be performing a routine at 11.30am.

Money raised from the event will go to The RNOH Charity Redevelopment Appeal, set up to raise £15 million to pay for additional facilities and equipment for the hospital, which is currently undergoing £90million redevelopment.
