A DETERMINED group are getting ready to walk from Barnsley to Birmingham in aid of Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Peter Harris, 43, will lead his group on May 2, walking from Barnsley to Birmingham Town Hall. The 88-mile journey will be completed over two days.

Sheffield-based Bluebell Wood supports children with a shortened life expectancy, providing ongoing medical respite care for the poorly child, emotional support for family members and bereavement support.

Peter, from Darton, said: "My wife has volunteered at the hospice before and they do such a great job so I wanted to raise money for them.

"It'll be a long old walk but we're only too happy to help out in any way we can."
