REGISTRATION has opened for an annual charity walk.

The ninth annual ‘Walk 4 Your Charity’ event, organised by the Rotary Club of Church and Oswaldtwistle, will feature both 5k and 10k distances to suit all ages and capabilities.

Organiser, Ron Pickup, said: “This is one of our club’s key events.”

The walk starts from 9.30am on Sunday, May 18, opposite the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Clayton-le-Moors.

The longer route takes walkers along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, through Great Harwood, and back to the start.

The shorter route will go through Rishton and Great Harwood before finishing back at the start position.

Walkers are encouraged to wear fancy dress, and prizes will be given to the best individual and the best group.

Streetband BlowJangles will perform for walkers at the finish line, and refreshments will be offered along the route.

Entrance fee is £5 per person, £7 on the day, under 12s go free.

Any dogs must be on a lead.
