Get walking for a children’s charity

A CHILDREN’S cancer charity is holding a fund-raising family walk and open day at a local nature reserve.

CLIC Sargent, a foundation which supports young cancer sufferers, have teamed up with Natural England to run the event at Hatfield Moors, which is part of the nationally significant Humberhead Peatlands reserve.

Walkers can take one of several routes around the moors, with Natural England guides on hand to inform them about the thousands of species that inhabit the area.

There will be free craft activities throughout the day and refreshments are also available.

The reserve has pushchair access meaning it is an ideal day out for all the family.

There is no charge to attend the event, which takes place on Saturday September, 18, although the charity are asking for voluntary donations towards its good work.

Jo Warmington, community fundraising manager, said: “CLIC Sargent is currently supporting 328 children and young people with cancer in Yorkshire. She added: “We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so fundraising events like this charity walk are vital to funding our services.”
