“The atmosphere is incredible with walkers of all ages making the day a memorable one,” she added.

The freewebstore team took part in their third Pendle Pub Walk and were delighted to able to match their 2015 fundraising amount for the hospice.

Stephen Darwood, Partner Manager at freewebstore said “Pendleside hospice is such a worthwhile cause, we’re always delighted to help out local charities”
