We are really looking forward to holding one of our runs here as I have been trying to cover Blackpool for some time now and Stanley Park is very close to my heart as me and my family have been coming here, using the boats and having cakes in the Café for many years!
We also have family support and information and advice officers based in offices round the corner from the park so we are thrilled to be using this as one of our venues for 2014.
