Epic walk raises £2,000 for Martin House

Last Saturday (7 May 2017) Dean Hall and Karl Blackburn from Hunslet visited Martin House children’s hospice to hand over a cheque for £2,075.

As previously reported on South Leeds Life, the two men completed a massive 60 mile charity walk a month previously. Setting off from the hospice at Boston Spa at 8am on 7 April, they reached Scarborough castle just before 8am the following morning.

Describing the hike, Dean said:

“It was the hardest challenge either of us have taken on. As difficult as the walk was, handing over the cheque made it all worthwhile for such a fantastic cause.”
