As spring creeps in, groups walking Cardiff’s parks are not an odd sight.
But Sunday’s Walk for life, organised by Kidney Wales Foundation, with its bright outfits and turnout of around 250 people, was difficult to miss.
The event, starting at pub, Y Mochyn Du, and ending at Cardiff castle, was organised to raise money and awareness about kidney problems.
This comes at a topical moment. With the Welsh Assembly’s new extended powers, some are questioning if Wales can be more active in supporting those affected by kidney problems.
