BITMOs GATE walk for Children in Need

Walking Group at Bitmo Gate

I was asked by Carla of BITMOs GATE if I would like to combine the Walk and Talk group, and host a special 7k walk, and raise money for Children in Need.

Of course on behalf of the group I said yes.

So we all wrapped up warm and had hot drinks before setting off on the walk. On the walk was Sue, Nicola, Joanne, Dave and myself.

We were lucky that the on the day, no rain was forecast.

The walk was circular through Belle Isle and Middleton Park, and took around an hour to complete the 7k. From and back to BITMOs GATE.

We all arrived back at BITMOs GATE, where we all ate carrot cake. Donna baked potatoes for us all, with cheese and coleslaw, provided for us by Carla and BITMO. Of course hot drinks provided.

We raised £57.00 for Children in Need on the day. So thank you to all who donated money for this wonderful charity. A cheque has been posted off to Children in Need.

I watched some of the Children in Need programme when we were shown how the money went for good courses.

While on the subject of the Walking group, from January 2018 the walk will be on a Monday from 11am till 12pm. Same venue.

The new time will allow me to have lunch, before joining the Ancestry Group in the afternoon.

This will also allow me to start a new walking group with Middleton Elderly Aid on a Wednesday some time in the New Year. You can of course come on either of the 2 walks.

BITMOs GATE is located at Aberfield Gate, off Belle Isle Road, LS10 3QH. For more information call (0113) 378 2190 or email
