A charity walk is taking place in Whaley Bridge on bank holiday Monday.

The walk is being held at the Memorial Park from 9am to noon and will raise money for the Whaley Bridge Burkina Faso project.

Sponsor forms are available from Bella’s and Over the Road.

Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries on earth and the Whaley Bridge project is raising money to help families by giving them goats, a male and two females, which will breed and provide meat and kid goats to sell at market.

These families will then be able to eat better, and create income to send their children to school.

Any funding raised will be match-funded by the EU by four times.
