The Rotary Club of Church and Oswaldtwistle has set up a Team Nepal ahead of its Charity Walk.
The club is asking participants to raise money for the people of Nepal following the devastating earthquake.
Registrations are up on last year and many large groups have entered in either the main 10k or 5k walks or the 5k fun run.
Walk organiser Richard Wallwork said: “A lot of people have been asking ‘how can I help raise funds for these poor people’? A lot of people have been donating money to help the crisis organisations take action to help.
“Although the walk is taking place three weeks after the disaster the need for funds and support will continue for many months to come.
“Following various requests ‘Team Nepal’ has been formed.”
The popular annual walk will held on Sunday, May 17, and will start and finish at Junction 7 Business Park, Clayton-le-Moors.
The Rotary Club of Church and Oswaldtwistle has already been involved in Nepal over the past year, installing a water system in the village of Maikot in the Gorka region of the country.
The village has been badly affected by the earthquake and personal and club donations have been forwarded to the Rotary club of Gorka to help them in their plight.
Ian McTurk, president of the Church and Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club, said: “I am very proud of what our club are achieving in this annual walk, the high level of registrations that are being received is very satisfying and is a credit to walk organiser Richard Wallwork. All we want now is a fine day.”
The club has issued the last call to all residents of Hyndburn and outlying districts to go along with or without sponsorship and help make this year’s walk the best ever.
Every penny donated goes to the nominated good cause. All the administration is done by volunteers.
