WALKERS are being invited to step out along a famous trail to raise money for terminally-ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.

The invitation comes from the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust, which is offering people the chance to join it for a two-day trek along the Sandstone Trail.

On April 28 and 29 a team of adventurous walkers will take in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, starting on the Saturday in Frodsham and ending 55 kilometres (34 miles) later the next day in Whitchurch.

The trek will take in the famous trail’s sandstone ridges, Manly Common, Delamere Forest and Ridgeway Wood on day one, after which participants will have a well-earned barbecue and overnight stay at bunkhouse accommodation after their long day’s walking.

The next morning they will continue their trek past Peckforton Castle towards the flats of Shropshire before they reach their goal at Whitchurch via the Llangollen Canal.

Jure Modic, the charity’s Challenge Fundraiser, will be joining the group.

He said: “We're blessed to have some beautiful countryside on our doorstep in Cheshire - this truly is a magnificent part of the world.

“There's no better way of experiencing the great outdoors than getting out walking in the hills.

“It's going to be a fabulous couple of days, with amazing views, great company and fantastic walking.

“More importantly, we’re hoping to raise lots of money which will enable children from our region to experience the fun and freedom of childhood most of us take for granted, but sadly for them is so far out of reach.”

You can register your place or places - this is perfect for individuals or a corporate team - for just £50, and pledge to raise a minimum of £200 per person and you could be part of Team CAFT for this challenge.
