Charity Walk 1


Over recent years we have had the pleasure of being able to contribute to a worthy charitable cause, namely CLIC Sargent. As part of our charity fund raising each year we join forces with Boots the Chemist to hike around the Derbyshire Peak District, anything between 12 to 20 miles is normal depending on how good or bad our navigator is. I am glad to say that Darren managed to keep us on the right path this year and Richard had a decent pair of boots this time instead of the pumps with the soles hanging off that he was adamant were up to the job.

It is fair to say that we are all extremely fit, so walking these sorts of distances to us is no real challenge!!! Needless to say the real driving force was the thought of a pint or two at the end in a suitable watering hole.


Obviously the real reason for all this is to raise funds and we are proud to announce that over the past four years we have contributed in excess of £15,000. This would not be possible without the help of all the companies willing to donate for such a worthy cause, therefore our thanks go out to all concerned.

Every day 10 families are told their child has cancer. As the UK's leading children's cancer charity, CLIC Sargent is the only organisation to offer them all round care and support. Their mission is to be there for each family, caring every step of the way, providing individual support to children and young people with cancer and leukaemia and their families through:

The care and treatment of children with cancer has come a long way and today seven out of ten children diagnosed will survive.

CLIC Sargent is committed to improving this figure further through its specialist care and by funding both clinical and social research projects.

But the fact is, cancer is still the largest killer disease in young children. The survivors of childhood cancer face major challenges of on-going side effects and discrimination. They still need our support.

They are committed to delivering the best possible services to children, young people with cancer and their families. For further information about the services they provide, please visit their web site
