his years Christmas walk for Leukaemia and Lymphoma NI takes place in Portrush on Tuesday 27th December at 1pm.  Staring at Portrush Harbour, walkers follow the coast to the White Rocks, returning to the Harbour Bar where they are welcomed back with a cup of hot soup.  The family friendly event, now in its 29th year, was first organised by Garth and Ella Giffin following the death of their 19 year old daughter Lynda.
