Brand new Pie & Pint event this February!

A tasty pie and a traditional pint – that’s the welcome awaiting walkers at a new fundraising event organised by East Cheshire Hospice.

A 10k walk on Sunday, February 6, starts and ends at Macclesfield Rugby Union Football Club.

Pie and Pint, starting at 10 am, is a scenic stroll through the Cheshire countryside.

The route visits Over Alderley before a half way refreshment stop at Mottram St Andrew. Prestbury is the next port of call before the last stretch into Dale Brow and back to the rugby club.

Tickets are £25 for adults and £15 for under 18s who must be accompanied by an adult or have written permission. Tickets will also provide a non-alcoholic drink.

Challenge Events Coordinator Bethan Wade said: “It’s a new event and a great way to get into shape for the spring.

“Walkers are urged to wear suitable clothing and footwear such as walking boots and waterproofs and not trainers as the route is challenging and is likely to be muddy.

Fundraiser Beth Candy shows the way on the Pie and Pint route.

“The entry fee only covers the cost of staging the event, so we’re asking walkers to raise sponsorship which will go directly towards caring for patients.

“All entrants will receive a custom pint glass, hi vis jacket and, of course, a pie and a pint at the end. There are three flavours – meat and potato, chicken balti and cheese and onion – plus vegan, gluten free options. Walkers  can watch the rugby afterwards if they wish.”
