Hundreds set to walk for charity during fun day of activities

CROSBY Coastal Park will play host to a summer fundraiser by Clatterbridge Cancer Charity when hundreds of walkers will complete different challenges.

Lead The Way, to be held on July 18, will involve music, food and drinks but most importantly a 3, 5 or 10 mile walking challenge so locals can raise money for charity.

There will also be a Pooch Parade with categories including Best in Show, Ultimate Cutie and Clatterbridge Mascot.

One of the walkers will be Bob Stone, who has taken part in the event for the last two years.

He said: “Two years ago Clatterbridge gave the most precious gift of all, the life of a beautiful, talented woman named Estelle, and my dearest friend. The care she received at Clatterbridge has made her a survivor, and I will do the Lead the Way Walk this year and every year that I can, because every penny raised helps, but no amount of money can repay the debt thousands of families and friends owe Clatterbridge for the lives of their loved ones."

Clatterbridge Event Manager Mark Parkinson said, “We look forward to our walks each year as they are so well attended and make for a fantastic day out. For every supporter taking part and every donation made we help the 1 in 2 who need Clatterbridge right now. We’re really excited to once again see everyone enjoy a beautiful day out in the sunshine where we will celebrate, remember, or support our loved ones by helping Clatterbridge to Lead The Way in cancer care.”
