Fundraisers at the Macclesfield hospice are hosting a 15mile hike from the Millbank Drive Hospice, up and over thePeak District to Blythe House in High Peak.

You do need to be a good walker to takepart in this event but it is a great opportunity to challengeyourself and support a local charity without having to travel veryfar”.
