Kind-hearted walkers in Chorley have donated £1,000 to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation which supports cancer treatment in Lancashire.

The walkers, who all take part in Chorley Council’s weekly health walks, raised the money over 12 months from the sale of cups of tea they enjoyed after the walks.

The £1,000 cheque was presented to Dan Hill, area fund-raising co-ordinator for Rosemere, by Ken Jones, the health walkers’ most senior member.

Free health walks are held most week days, led by trained volunteers. No booking is required. The weekly walks are: l The Monday Tatton Canal Walk, starting at 1pm at Tatton Community Centre, off Silverdale Road, returning around 2.45pm and with a stop en route.

  • The Tuesday Adlington Walk, meeting at Jubilee Playing Fields, Park Road at 10am and returning at 11am.
  • The Wednesday Astley Park Walk, meeting at Astley Hall at 10.30am, returning for 11.30am.
