The walk takes place on May 9.

A spokesman for the organisers said: “Saints With Heart began in 2002 when three Saints fans all suffered heart attacks in the space of a few months. A walk was organised and in the space of a few weeks, 30 took part and raised £4,000 for the BHF.

“We have grown significantly since, and at our peak have had 100 walkers raising £20,000 a year in recent times. Our total raised so far for the BHF is over £168,000 - but we want to make the 2015 edition the biggest yet, so we’re getting people to do more than just walk.

“Whether people cycle, skateboard, three legged race or just arrive in a classic car we want them to get sponsored for their journey to Franklin’s Gardens before the London Welsh match. The more creative the idea, the better!”

He added: “This year, 25 percent of our proceeds will be going to the Leon Barwell Foundation, which raises money to support parents affected by cancer by helping them create memories that are everlasting.”

“Saints With Heart is entirely run by volunteers who give up their time to raise money for these great causes,” he added.
