Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

2016 Boosbeck Charity Walkers get their Marching Boots Ready

CaptureAn army of dedicated walkers are getting ready for a May 29th hike across the Cleveland Hills and the North York Moors  in aid of a vital life saving rescue service.
The long-established Boosbeck Station Hotel charity walk for the Great North Air Ambulance will be repeating its annual 18 mile circular walk across the North York Moors and the Cleveland Hills, which for this year is scheduled for Sunday 29th May.  It will leave the Station Hotel on Boosbeck’s High Street at 7.30 in the morning, and following a route taking in Gribdale, the Captain Cooks Monument at Easby, Commondale and Birk Brow, returning back to the start for a well earned rest, sandwiches and cool drinks.
The walk has, over the years. raised thousands for the Great North Air Ambulance last year, and is one of the largest single year by year community contributions to the air ambulance service 
Peter Welcome, for the Walk Committee, said “This walk is going from strength to strength, and we want to make this the biggest yet.  The more walkers we get, the better the reward for the Air Ambulance.  It’s not just a walk for local villagers.  In the past we have welcomed walkers from across Teesside and the North East and North Yorkshire and hope to see them again this year.  
Station Hotel landlady, Barbara  Holliday said “I see the walk as one of the highlights of the pub year. Many pub regulars take part, and I am proud of the efforts they put in to see that the walk is a success.”
Anyone wanting to take part in the walk should contact Bernie Johns on 01287 653774, Mike Biondi on 01287 651044 or Peter Welcome on 01287 652988.
