and live on Freeview channel 276
Shelly Heap, who is the bar manager at Lowerhouse Cricket Club and Royal Dyche landlady Justine Lorriman are this year putting their best feet forward for the UK Sepsis Trust charity.
They already have over 70 people signed up to join them for the walk which will take place on Good Friday starting from the Royal Dyche with a route through town, Rosegrove and ending at Lowerhouse Cricket Club where entertainment will be laid on for everyone.
This is the third walk the duo have organised to get people together and also raise money for good causes.
In 2018 they raised money for Papyrus UK suicide prevention charity and last year the Downs' Syndrome Association.
They chose the sepsis charity for 2020 in honour of two people they know who lost their lives to the devastating condition, Ethan Hunt and Elisa Hindle.
Ethan was just 16 when he was struck down with the condition in 2018.. A student at Burnley's Blessed Trinity RC College he was also best friends with Shelly's son Brooklyn, who will be among the Good Friday walkers.
Elisa was a close friend of Shelly's for several years and a much loved and popular lady. She died in May, 2017 at the age of 42 after suffering from multi organ failure when she contracted sepsis.
Originally from Crawshawbooth, Elisa spent many years working as a hairdresser but before she died was a self employed cleaner. She was also a popular barmaid at the Black dog pub in Crawshawbooth.
Shelly said: "Elisa had a heart of gold and always had a smile on her face no matter what was going on. She lit up the room wherever she went, she was a really special girl."
Shelly added that they wanted to get as many people as possible on board with the walk to help raise awareness of a condition that affects people all over the world.
She said: "Everyone is welcome to join us, it is really good fun, a great day out and a chance to raise some money."
Walkers are each asked to pay £5 that will go into the charity pot and there will be collection buckets for on the way round. Each pub the walkers visit has agreed to pay £20 and that will also added to the total raised.
