Lace up for Lions’ charity walk

HIGH Peak walkers are being invited to take part in a charity challenge later this month.

The Buxton Twin Peaks Challenge, organised by Buxton Lions, is a five- mile moonlight sponsored walk taking place on Friday, June 22.

Teams of four are invited to take part in the walk with entry at £10 per person. Participants can either choose their own charity to raise money for or support the three chosen organisations, Buxton4Youth, Help for Heroes or The Christie Hospital in Manchester.

The walk will start from the boating lake pavilion in the Pavilion Gardens at 10pm, finishing at the Buckingham Hotel on Burlington Road. Fancy dress, including nightwear, is optional but hiking boots or suitable stout footwear is essential.

To enter and for sponsor forms call 01298 77137 (day) or 01298 78093 (evening) or visit
