Buttie treat for Ripon sunrise walkers
FUNDRAISERS taking part in a special morning charity walk will be rewarded for their efforts with a special breakfast buttie from a historic local butcher.
Staff from Appleton’s Butchers, of Ripon, will be getting up extra early on Sunday October 14 to serve all participants in the Saint Michael’s Ripon Sunrise Walk with a breakfast treat at the end of their six mile walk.
The Ripon Sunrise Walk offers people the chance to experience some of North Yorkshire’s most beautiful countryside while also raising vital funds for Saint Michael’s Hospice, the charity offering care to people from Ripon and the surrounding areas who are living with terminal illness.
Anthony Sterne, owner of Appleton’s of Ripon, said: “Since 1867 Appleton’s has been part of the local community so we are very proud to be helping to raise money to support the good work that Saint Michael’s does in our area.
“Taking part in the Sunrise Walk is an opportunity for the community to join together to show their support for local people living with terminal illness and we look forward to seeing everyone there on October 14.”
The event, sponsored by Eura Audit Ripon, leaves Sawley Village as the sun rises, and takes in a six mile route passing Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal and Deer Park.
It finishes at Ripon Cathedral with hot drinks and fine handmade sausage and dry cured bacon butties from Appleton’s of Ripon for each walker.
The event, also supported by the Ripon Gazette and Boroughbridge Herald, is suitable for all ages and abilities and walkers are welcome to bring their dogs.
Registration costs £10 for adults and £5 for children and every participant is asked to raise sponsorship for Saint Michael’s.
As a charity Saint Michael’s relies on funds raised at events like the Ripon Sunrise Walk to help hundreds of local people each year to live with terminal illness.
