More than 500 people took part in Hyndburn’s biggest charity walk of the year.
Organisers at Church and Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club said more than £25,000 has been raised for various charities, including victims of the recent Nepal earthquakes.
The tenth annual walk was launched and supported by BBC Radio Lancashire’s Sally Naden and over the past decade has raised around £350,000 for good causes.
Event organiser and club Rotarian Richard Wallwork said it was ‘very pleasing to have such a large turnout’.
He said: “We had a surge of ticket sales during the last two weeks as a result of creating the ‘Team Nepal’ slot.
“The projected amount of money raised for good causes never ceases to amaze me and I know that often teams raise more than they initially project.
“Well done our walkers and runners, without doubt this annual walk brings great credit to the borough of Hyndburn.
“I would also like to thank the help from local Rotary clubs who provided stewards and also the volunteers from Red Rose Recovery.”
Walkers enjoyed dry weather on Sunday, May 17 as they took part in either the 5k or 10k walks.
The main walk went along the scenic stretch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal and along the old railway track to Great Harwood before returning to the starting position at Junction 7 Business Park in Clayton-le-Moors.
Entertainment was provided by Blow Jangles and they were supported by the East Lancs Cheerleaders as the walkers crossed the finishing line.
For the first time the event also included a 5k fun run.
Ian McTurk, President of the Rotary club of Church and Oswaldtwistle, said: “I am very proud what has been achieved today in making this annual walk so successful.
“The club appreciates the help from local Rotary clubs and other organisations in the various tasks they were given to make the day so enjoyable.
“Most of all many thanks to all the walkers and fun runners who raised much needed funds for the various charities.”
