Organisers are hoping that in excess of 1,000 people will take part in the 2016 Pendle Pub Walk.
Last year’s event raised more than £50,000 for Pendleside Hospice.
Organised by the Rotary Club of Burnley Pendleside, the sponsored walk, on Saturday, June 18th, is a combination of countryside and road-walking which provides epic views of the area around Pendle Hill and takes in14 pubs and bars.
The full route is around 12 miles, but can be as short as six miles. This year the event is going to have two starting points. Walkers can choose to set off from the Village Hall, Barley with The Pendle Inn as the first pub en-route or The Sparrowhawk, Fence. However there are three finishing points which includes the Four Alls at Higham so walkers have a great choice of distances. Registration is still only £10 and closes at 9 am on Monday, June 13th. On the day registrations are available but the fee will increase by asking people to give an extra £15 donation as it is assumed they will not be collecting sponsorship money. in aid of the hospice.,
£5 of the registration fee goes to Rotary Charity, for distributing to various local and international charities.
