Paul Parrish, fundraising director for Grove House, said: "The Herts 10K is one of the leading 10K runs in the county, attracting walkers, first-time runners and keen amateurs.

"This year we are urging everyone to go that extra mile and raise as much as they can in sponsorship so that we can reach our target of �200,000 which will help fund our hospice at home service needed by the community."

And Lawrence Levy, the inspiration behind the event, added: "We are extremely proud that since 2006 the Herts 10K has enabled Grove House to launch its hospice at home service.

"However, to keep this much-needed service going I urge everyone to please dig deep and set themselves the goal of donating or raising as much sponsorship as they possibly can. All monies will go directly to helping our community and the people who live in it."
