Walking for cancer charity

A CHILDREN’S CANCER CHARITY is holding a fund-raising family walk and open day later this month 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 18 September, although the charity are asking for voluntary donations.

Jo Warmington, Community Fundraising Manager at CLIC Sargent says ‘CLIC Sargent is currently supporting 328 children and young people with cancer in Yorkshire. We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, so fundraising events like this charity walk are vital to funding our services. We want as many people as possible to come down on the day and join in on a walk or some of the activities we have planned!’
