A TWILIGHT trek up Darwen Tower is set to raise funds for young people.

Blackburn Youth Zone is launching the evening event this summer and it will see fundraisers make their way up the tower accompanied by music and bright lights.

Laura Jones, events manager at Blackburn Youth Zone, said: “The Twilight Trek is a great way for everyone in the community to raise funds for its young people.

“Everyone is invited to come along and you’ll be accompanied by a Youth Zone member of staff or volunteer throughout the challenge who will help you to the top.”

Starting at 8pm on Saturday August 17 from Bold Venture Park, each participant over 18 will be asked to raise £50.
