Howarth Timber puts its best foot forward for charity

A coastal walk to raise money for Cancer Research UK has a £10,000 target.

The 20-mile hike from Scarborough Castle to Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire, will take place on 21-23 September.

It was organised by Howarth Timber & Building Supplies, to raise money for its charity partner for this year, Cancer Research UK, which supports cancer patients and their families.

Staff and customers have been encouraged to take part - all that is required is the commitment to raise £250.

There are a total of 40 places on the trip, with just two left, so if all the places are filled Howarth Timber is on track to achieve its £10,000 target.

The builders’ merchant has undertaken several walking challenges over the years to raise money for charity, including climbing mountains Ben Nevis and Snowdon.

Marketing Manager Gavin Knowles said: “We’re proud to have been able to run another fundraising event for Cancer Research UK.

“These annual walking events have become the highlight of Howarth’s fundraising calendar, and they have previously been very successful.

“The costs of the event are shared between the participants and the company, so every penny donated will go towards finding a cure for cancer sooner.”
