A brisk walk breathing in countryside air with plenty of pub stops for some liquid refreshment’s what summer days are made for!

Be among the first to secure your place on a brand-new sponsored pub walk this year to boost funds for the East Lancashire Hospice.

Open to both men and women, the fund-raiser will take in approximately 10 pubs in 10 miles of the beautiful Ribble Valley.

Registration is £10 per person, which includes an exclusive pub walk t-shirt and certificate for each entrant. The walk will begin at the Foxfields Hotel, Billington and organisers are looking for groups to take part.

A spokesman said: “The idea of the event is to encourage community spirit, but to raise money for a good cause at the same time.” East Lancashire Hospice, which cares for patients across Burnley, Pendle and the Ribble Valley, needs to raise £2.8m. every year to meet running costs. Officials say 100% of the sponsor money raised by participants will go towards caring for hospice patients and their families. For further information and registration go to or call 01254 733410. Online registration closes on Monday, May 25th.
