Enjoy a walk and raise money for charity in Northumberland
Bookmark and Share
Most people who pull on their walking boots at the weekends do so to improve their fitness or simply enjoy the great British countryside.

However, anyone who takes part in a hike in Northumberland later this month will have the added benefit of being able to raise money for charity.

The British Heart Foundation is encouraging people to sign up for its Hadrian's Wall Hike Adventure, which takes place on September 23rd and begins at the Housesteads Fort Visitors Centre.

Entry costs £20, but it all goes towards vital research against heart disease, one of the biggest killers in this country.

The walk covers ten miles across the wall, which was begun in 122 AD as a fortification and is now the most popular tourist attraction in northern England.

It became a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1987 and the wall can be followed along much of its length on foot.

However, anyone who does not want to go walking and would prefer a bike ride can also follow it on National Cycle Route 72.
