Mike and Lucy Wright with David and Karine Thornhill organised a 2-day sponsored walk in the Derbyshire Dales in September to raise funds for the Nottinghamshire Leukaemia Appeal. David has been treated for Leukaemia and Lucy, his sister is his stem cell donor.

The 12 mile route on day 1 went from Great Longstone to Birchover via Chatsworth, whilst Day 2  covered 11 miles back to Great Longstone via Lathkill Dale. Walkers were invited to walk for one day or both and a Pie and Peas supper was held on the Saturday evening at ‘The Crispin’.

As can be seen from the photos a good, and sunny, time was had by all!

The organisers presented the money raised by the walk, an amazing £1670, to Prof John Fletcher from the NLA in December.
