Charity Duo To Take On Hike

A worker from charity Nightsafe is teaming up with a colleague on a 30-mile walk to raise funds to mark the organisations 30th Anniversary.
Office and Finance manager Diane Page and LEAP Co-Ordinator Wayne Bowman will tackle the Three Towers Challenge walk.

It involves walking over the West Pennine Moors to the Three Towers: Peel Tower to Ramsbottom, Darwen Tower to Darwen and Rivington Pike to Winter Hill.

The duo will start at 6am on Saturday 19th September and hope to complete the hike within 13 hours.

Both Diane and Wayne are avid walkers and have completed other walking challenges to raise money for Nightsafe in the past.

Jan Larkin; CEO of the Blackburn based charity said “What a wonderful way to celebrate our 30th Anniversary whilst raising money for Nightsafe at the same time”

The 3 Towers Challenge Walk

The route is a long distance challenge walk over the West Pennine Moors taking in the 3 towers of Rivington Pike, Peel Tower and Darwen Tower.

The walk will commence from the Royal Arms Car Park, Tockholes at 6am and firstly passes through Roddlesworth Woods and out onto the A675. From here the route ascends Great Hill (381m) before traversing along lonely moorland towards Rivington Pike, the first tower (362m) in time for breakfast. The walk then climbs over Winter Hill, the highest point on the West Pennine Moors (456m) and Turton Heights (329m) before descending towards Entwistle Reservoir and the Strawberry Duck Pub for refreshments.

From here, the route makes its way through farmland and moorland towards Peel Tower (340m), overlooking Ramsbottom before following the same route back to the Strawberry Duck. The final part of the walk follows the Witton Weavers Way across the A666 and onto Darwen Moor before making a long ascent of Darwen Tower (372m). The 3 Towers Walk will then be complete and all that follows is a decent back down to the Royal Arms.

The walk will aim to be completed in 12-13 hours.

The half an hour in the morning through Roddlesworth Woods will be in the dark, head torches will be needed. The descent back to the Royal Arms will be made as the sun is setting and into dusk. c. 7-7.30pm.

Without the help of our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Thank you to all our #NightsafeHeroes.
