WALKERS are tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for Manorlands.

The hospice's Skipton support group is helping to organise the event, on Sunday, May 13.

Several members of the group have had loved ones cared for at the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice or by its community nurses.

Manorlands community fundraiser, Molly Ralphson, said: "Talking to the group members about the care they received at such difficult times in their lives really shows just how important the hospice is.

"We need to raise £2.3 million in 2018-19 to continue our specialist care, as we only receive £1.1 million in statutory funding.

"The Skipton fundraising group is a new team of volunteers supporting the hospice and the Three Peaks event looks like it's going to be a great day out."

The event – which takes in Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – is open to anyone able to attempt the route in under 12 hours.

Checkpoints and refreshments will be provided and qualified mountain leaders will act as stewards.
