GLOBE readers are being invited to sign up for this year's Wirral Coastal Walk in aid of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

Organised by Rotary Club of North Wirral, the event takes place on Sunday, May 11. The 15-mile journey starts at Seacombe Ferry Terminal and finishes at Thurstaston Country Park, although walkers have the option of completing their journey after four or ten miles.

Funds raised will help MDC in its ground-breaking research into treatments for muscular dystrophy and related conditions, and supporting the 70,000 families in the UK affected by them – 8,000 of them from the Northwest.

Charles Horton, volunteer fundraising manager, said: "By signing up for this event, showing us your support and enjoying a great day out with family or friends, you could help us to save lives."

Walkers are asked to raise £100 sponsorship for the campaign and will receive fundraising support and a T-shirt to sport on the day.

If you are interested in taking part email or call 01244 536551 for an entry form and sponsorship pack.
