Walkers are being urged to sign up to an 11-mile sponsored pub walk and help raise money for local good causes.

The Ribble Valley Pub Walk takes place on Saturday, June 24th, and registration is just £10 with every participant receiving a t-shirt. The event is organised by the Rotary Club of Ribblesdale in aid of East Lancashire Hospice. Last year saw around 250 people of all ages taking part and the event has raised almost £30,000 since it started in 2015.

The walk takes in some of the most scenic parts of the picturesque Ribble Valley and stops at many pubs along the way including The Aspinall Arms, The Three Fishes, Brady’s Wine Bar, The Dog Inn, The Swan and the De Lacey Arms.

The route is similar to last year, with a slight amendment so it takes in the beautiful Edisford Bridge and Bashall Barn.

The route is planned and marshalled by the Rotary Club and half of the registration money is donated to the hospice, while the other half to the Rotary Club charities. All sponsor money raised by those taking part goes directly to East Lancashire Hospice.
