THE Rotary Club of Chester is calling on people to join its annual Spring Walk.
Starting and ending at Chester Racecourse on Sunday, March 24, walkers can choose to tackle either the three and a half mile or seven mile routes to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. There will also be a suitable route for wheelchair users.
Rotarian Doreen Marchant-Stubbs said: “Our charity this year is Macmillan Cancer Support as it is a cause very close to our hearts as everyone is affected by cancer in some way. People can, of course, walk for a charity of their choice too.”
A team of 15 workers from BT Wholesale in Chester has signed up to take part with the team aiming to raise £1,000 for Macmillan.
Team member Anne Ashman said: “We are all really looking forward to it. I lost my mum six years ago to cancer, so I will be walking in her memory.
“It will be great to complete the walk with some of my colleagues. As a team we are aiming to raise £1,000 for local charities as part of an ongoing community project which also involves volunteering.”
Sarah Page, from Macmillan, said: “The walk sounds like it will be a fantastic event and we are really grateful for being chosen as its official charity.
“Walking is a brilliant way to keep fit, get some fresh air and spend time with family, friends and colleagues.”
