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.

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”.
