At Mag North we’ve just embarked on a gruelling training regime in preparation for our ‘Mag North For Maggie’s Christmas Day Bimble 2022’. On the advice of our dietician Terry (who’s got a book off the internet), we apparently need to carb-load from now until the 25th of December – to make sure we’re at our absolute peak for our fantastic Malham circular route. That means 4 individual mince pies per person, per day until the big day – but it’s a sacrifice worth making for an incredible cause.
Maggie’s offers the best possible support free to anyone with cancer and their families, who walk through their doors. Their amazing centres are based alongside NHS hospitals and they also support online.
On our patch, we are very lucky to have Maggie’s Centres in Manchester, Newcastle, Oldham, Wirral and Yorkshire (formerly Leeds). The support that each of these centres provide for anyone experiencing cancer is second-to-none – but Maggie’s does so much more – and they do it in a way that has had a positive impact on many thousands of lives.
At Mag North, we’re massive fans of Maggie’s Manchester – based in the Robert Parfett building next door to The Christie – and so this Christmas Day, we’re pulling on our boots and going to enjoy a fantastic 6km walk at Malham in the Yorkshire Dales – to raise a sack-full of cash for these inspirational people. AND WE'D LOVE YOU TO COME WITH US!
Right in the heart of the country, Malham is about an hour-and-a-half from York and the same from Manchester. Malhamdale has some of the most exquisite scenery in the North – and our walk will take in very special places like Janet’s Foss, Goredale Scar and Malham Cove.
So: if you’re keen to do something different this Christmas Day (or you don't celebrate) – and you love being outdoors – our Bimble could be for you!
At this stage we don’t want to put an upper limit on numbers…so there is definitely a place for you. Led by experienced Mountain Leaders and with lots of stops for seasonal foodstuffs (no turkey), you can be part of something special as we toast Christmas in Limestone Country with our famous Mag North Boozy Hot Chocolate!
Families, Couples, Singles and Groups are all most welcome. The more the merrier! (See what we did there?)
To spend your Christmas Day having a great time and doing something other than watching the King’s Speech and questioning your relationship with ‘After Eight’ mints – please drop us a line for info and with any questions.
To join our Mag North For Maggie’s Christmas Day Bimble – a suggested donation of £25 made via Just Giving will secure your place and provide you with all the seasonal snacks and hot chocolate you can manage – together with a Tote bag of goodies at the end which holds a Maggie’s T Shirt, even more food and some extra treats to say a big THANK YOU!
Please contact us for our Just Giving Link.
So…join us to Walk The Walk for Maggie’s this Christmas Day and still get home in time for the Strictly Christmas Special!
