Hiking the Hill to help hospices

East Cheshire Hospice and Blythe House Hospice are launching their first joint event, Hike the Hill.

Fund-raisers will walk 15 miles of beatiful countryside from Blythe House Hospice in Chapel-en-le-Frith to East Cheshire Hospice in Macclesfield to generate sponsorship for both.

Lara Rigby from East Cheshire Hospice said: “The route has been mapped out by an experienced walker and will take around 7.5 hours to complete. It is a great opportunity to challenge yourself and support a local charity.’

The Hike will take place on September 11 and registration is now open. Orbit Developments are sponsoring some of the costs of the event and so all subsequent sponsorship raised will go directly to supporting the work of each hospice.

Entry into the Hike is £10 and you can register online today to support either hospice at www.eastcheshirehospice.org.uk.

Lucy Marsden of Blythe House Hospice said: “This is a really exciting venture for both hospices and here at Blythe House Hospice we are really looking forward to the Hike.

“It is a challenge, however promises to be well worth the effort for experienced walkers.”
