Sign up for fun charity event

Have your say

A TEAM of fundraisers from The Shakespeare pub in Barnsley are preparing to leave their local behind for Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s Walk ’til You Drop event.

Debbie Sanderson, manager of the town centre pub, persuaded a barman, a regular and her partner to sign up to spend a Sunday trekking through the Peak district before abseiling 80 feet.

“We’re not particularly active - you’d never catch any of us out for a jog, so it’s going to be difficult,” said Debbie.

“We will all make it to the end before we drop though, I’ll make sure of it.”

‘Walk ’til You Drop’ involves an eight-mile walk through beautiful countryside followed by an abseil over a river.

The challenge takes place on Sunday, July 8, at Miller’s Dale in the Peak district. To register, visit
