Corby Colleagues take a long walk for charity

Staff at a Corby company took a long walk round the town with family members and friends to raise funds for Lakelands Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support.

And they hope the 34-mile hike, in memory of their friend John-Clive Tattersall, who lost his battle with cancer in January, will have raised more than £5,000 to share between the two charities.

Staff from Lockhart Garratt, the Corby forestry and environmental consultancy, took part in the walk on Saturday, August 31.

Associate director Ian Dudley said “We are delighted to be able to show our thanks to Macmillan for all of the help they gave to JC in his final days and also to continue to support Lakelands which offers great help to those in Corby with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

“The walk did take a lot of planning and was a formidable challenge for everyone involved, but the end result is well worth it and we continue to encourage everybody to support us in any way they can”.
