Staff members from Ash Tree House care home in Wigan are gearing up to take part in The Wigan Pub Walk in aid of Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

The fundraiser will see the team and other members of the community walk 14km around the town, supported by the neighbourhood pubs who will act as rest stops for those taking part.

So far, the walkers from Ash Tree House have collected over £100, and hope to raise more before the challenge on 18th May.
