Schoolboy's walk a mile a day challenge to raise money for Pendleside Hospice
and live on Freeview channel 276
And Alfie Hale had already smashed his £200 target by his second walk!
The 12-year-old wanted to do something to repay the hospice for the care they are currently giving to his dad, Gordon, who is terminally ill.
His proud mum Jane said: “Alfie couldn’t wait to get started. We are so very proud of him and the community is really supporting him with so many people making donations while he is out walking.”
Taking a different route each day from his home in the Lowerhouse area, you can’t miss Alfie as he will be wearing a bright yellow Pendleside Hospice t-shirt and carrying a donation bucket.
Sponsor forms for anyone who would like to make a donation to Alfie are available from Antonia’s hair salon in Padiham.
On Saturday, September 2nd, family and friends will join Alfie for his final walk in fancy dress, taking a route from George VI pub to Padiham Town Hall then back again to Sycamore Farm pub where Gordon will be waiting to greet them. Everyone is welcome to join in.
Jane added: “I will be in 80s gear but Alfie hasn’t made a decision yet on what his theme will be.”
