Charity walkers’ next challenge

5th January 2019
John Eastwood Hospice

Over the past 14 years, Brian Hawkins along with his walking partner Michael Dickinson have walked over 50,000 miles (with training and walks) and so far have raised over £310,000. Brian started these epic walks to say thank you and give something back to the John Eastwood Hospice, where his wife was cared for.

They are embarking on their latest venture, the Leeds to Spurn Point walk via the Leeds to Hull canal pathway.
They are always looking for sponsorship, so if anyone would like to sponsor them, there is a Just Giving page — go to and search for Brian Hawkins.

Or you can post a cheque to 22 Normanton Close, Edwinstowe, made payable to ‘John Eastwood Hospice’.
