Pride of the Peak Success!

A team of 22 walkers departed from Bakewell at 7am to undertake the Pride of the Peak walk to raise funds for Maggie’s Centre in Nottingham. Blessed with perfect weather conditions, the group followed the challenging 28.3 mile route through the glorious Derbyshire countryside. Three checkpoints at regular intervals along the route provided drinks and snacks to the weary walkers and the opportunity for a brief rest!

Eventually, after 13 hours, the odd wrong turn and a few blisters, the teams arrived at the finish back in Bakewell for a well-earned rest and a pint or two in the pub!

Fundraising has been very well supported for this event, but we still need support to reach our overall £2,500 target - it is not too late to donate!
