Night walk for cystic fibrosis

Have your say

STAY up past your bedtime to help people with cystic fibrosis by signing up for a sponsored night walk in Barnsley.

The 10-mile twilight walk takes place on Saturday, September 8 and starts at the Holiday Inn. Walkers can go at their own pace and fancy dress is welcomed. It costs £10 to enter and participants are encouraged to raise as much sponsorship as they can.

Dawn Osko Steer, regional fundraising manager for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, said: “This fantastic event was dreamed up by local fundraiser Katie Maxwell who wanted to organise something a little bit different. It raised over £6,000 last year and it’s great fun. Walking through the streets at that time of night is so atmospheric and interesting – everything looks different under the cover of dark!”
