Extra walkers welcomed

A LANDLADY has organised a sponsored fancy dress walk from her Todmorden pub to Hebden Bridge this weekend.

Susan Whittaker, of the Woodpecker Inn, Rochdale Road, Todmorden, has planned the walk, which starts on Sunday at 2pm, to raise funds for her cousin Bev Dransfield’s cancer treatment at a clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.

Susan said anybody who would like to take part in the walk is welcome to join in.

It is the latest in a series of events aiming to raise money to contribute to the cost of Bev’s treatment.

Earlier this month, staff and regulars at the Woodpecker Inn dressed in pink for a day and held raffles and bucket collections, raising a total of £551.35.
