Coast to coast for Overgate

SUE and Tony Flynn, keen walkers for 20 years, embark on their biggest challenge to date today (May 19) - the 192-mile Wainwright’s Coast To Coast Walk.

The couple believe it will be the holiday of a lifetime, walking from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay and taking in three national parks, and they decided they wanted to raise money for Calderdale’s Overgate Hospice while doing it, having lost family members to cancer over the last few years.

Sue says: “We have a donation page at or we have sponsorship forms at Waterside Gym (Hebden Bridge) and Todmorden Sports Centre - I teach exercise classes at both places - and at our local pub, The White Swan, Hebden Bridge.”
