Charity event for rescue team

Have your say

THE annual Grin ’n’ Bear It fell walk and race organised to raise cash for Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team is to be held next month.

It is a walk and race for all abilities, with four routes for participants to choose from – ranging from three to 23 miles.

Marshals will be stationed along each route to provide food and water to those taking part.

Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team, which helps injured climbers and walkers, relies on donations to fund the £20,000 a year it needs just to cover basic operating costs.

It is appealing to individuals and groups to take part in the charity event on Saturday, October 6.
