Pull on your walking boots to raise money

A CHARITY walk and open day to support and raise money for children and young people with cancer is taking place later this month.

The Hatfield Moors Charity Walk and Open Day, on Sunday 18th September, promises to be a fantastic family day out and will be raising vital funds for CLIC Sargent, supporting children and young people with cancer.

The charity day, organised by the CLIC Sargent Doncaster Fundraising Group, and Natural England is taking place on Hatfield Moors.

Walkers will have the choice of one of three walks around the national nature reserve and guided walks are available too, led by Natural England representatives.

With free children’s craft activities, pushchair access, and catering on site, the event will be a perfect day out for the whole family.

No entry fee or minimum sponsorship is required, CLIC Sargent is just asking for people to raise or donate what they can and have fun.

The event is also an Open Day for Hatfield Moors, part of the Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve, to encourage people to make use of the attraction all year round.

Hatfield Moors is open every day, with free entry and it’s a great place to spot wildlife.

Jo Warmington, Community Fundraising Manager at CLIC Sargent says : “CLIC Sargent is currently supporting 328 children and young people with cancer in Yorkshire.

“We rely, almost entirely, on voluntary donations, so fundraising events like this charity walk are vital to funding our services.

“We want as many people as possible to come down on the day and join in on a walk or some of the activities we have planned!”
