Our Chairman, Damian, along with family members have completed ‘The Mighty Hike’ for MacMillan, raising a grand total of £4,116, with some promissory support yet to be received.
The hike, over a beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales, was well supported by many hundreds of like-minded participants, all there to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Due to some heavy bursts of rain, the tricky terrain was made more challenging, but the camaraderie between the walkers and organisers, plus the occasional break out of sunshine, made for a most enjoyable experience.
Even the additional, almost, two mile walk, after reaching the appointed ‘13 mile’ marker, didn’t dampen spirits!
Although eyebrows were raised when the official photographs, at the finishing post, were taken in front of a large sign declaring a ’13 Mile’ hike had been achieved!
Thank you to all that have already donated to this marvellous charity and to those who are yet to close their account!
