BURY FC and the club's supporters' trust, Forever Bury, have announced two major fundraising events scheduled for the coming weeks.

On Good Friday (April 18) there will be a sponsored walk to the Shakers' away game at Rochdale (kick-off 3pm).

The club are looking for around 400 to 500 walkers who will leave Gigg Lane at 10am on the day.

It is hoped as many fans as possible will get involved in the walk for what could be a very lucrative fundraiser for the club.

If walking is a bit too strenuous for you, then maybe a few pints of ale is more in your line.

Forever Bury will be holding a Real Ale Festival on the weekend of Friday, May 2 - Saturday, May 3.

The Festival coincides with the final match of the season, a home clash against fellow promotion rivals Wrexham.

Let's hope it can double up as a promotion celebration!
