This year's RV Pub walk proved a huge success

"The event is always such a great day with a fantastic atmosphere. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Rotary Club of Ribblesdale for organising another successful Pub Walk and to our amazing sponsors Intack Self Drive, Blackburn and Loom Loft, Clitheroe for their support. Their corporate sponsorship and involvement on the day has enabled us to raise the maximum funds needed to carry on the invaluable care to patients in our community.

"This fundraiser has been the first one back since the pandemic and we are overwhelmed by the communities and the pubs on the routes support. We already cannot wait for next year’s event!"
