Long walk for fish ‘n’ chips

Have your say

A group of walkers from Tickhill will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support by putting their best feet forward in a coastal hike on Saturday.

Fitness expert Helen Durdy, who runs pilates and fitness training classes, has encouraged her students to participate in the Centenary Coastal Walk over 21 miles from Whitby to Scarborough.

Walkers from her classes have been training for the big event by putting in hikes of up to 16 miles over local routes.

Helen said: “Walkers will be leaving Whitby at 8am and the distance will take us around eight or nine hours. We will certainly be ready for a plate full of fish and chips when we have completed our exertions.”
