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.

Fundraiser Lara Rigby said “The Hike is a real challenge and weare really excited about it. The route has been mapped out by anexperienced walker and will take around seven-and -a-half hours tocomplete, and takes a beautifully picturesque route through theHigh Peak’s rolling hills. 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”.
