Mystery celebrity will join fundraising walk

Walkers who sign up for a three-charity walk will be joined by a unknown celebrity.

Last year Chris Gascoigne, better known as Coronation Street’s Peter Barlow, accompanied the ramblers on their journey. But those on this year’s charity family walk won’t know who will be joining them until the day.

The walk will go from Morrisons car park in Illingworth on Saturday September 24 at 1pm.

The group will then make the nine-mile hike to Haworth for Save the Children, Project Challenge and Halifax Air Cadets.

Anne Marie Cartwright came up with the idea for the walk and said she hopes the proceeds will help those in the community who are in need of help. Anyone who wishes to do the walk must enrol at Morrisons in Illingworth, on August 12, 19 or 31.

The cost is £2 for adults and £1 per child. Sponsor forms are available from Morrisons in Illingworth and from the Town Hall in Halifax. There will be refreshments provided along the route and at the finish for walkers, and there will also be a free bus to take them back to Illingworth at the end of the walk.
