The five Gritstone Charity Walks have been organised with 4 objectives in mind:


Raising money for good causes

Part of the entry fee will go towards the organisation costs of the walks and the remainder to the Rotary Club of Kidsgrove to support a number of good causes (e.g. the Kidsgrove First Responder Vehicle,  worthwhile pursuits for the young people of Kidsgrove, shelter boxes to help people survive large scale disasters such as floods and earthquakes). Additionally, walkers can support charities or community projects  of their own choice by seeking sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues using the supplied Sponsorship Form.


Promoting fitness

Walkers are encouraged to opt for a walk that will give them a personal challenge and then train to the level of fitness required to do their chosen walk.


Promoting community spirit

The walks provide an opportunity to meet other like-minded people from near and far, both during the walk and afterwards over a drink and bite to eat at the Bleeding Wolf Pub.


Exploring the beautiful countryside along the Cheshire / Staffordshire border

The walks pass through beautiful countryside and offer stunning views in all directions - even as far as Wales on a clear day. From the tranquil beauty of the Macclesfield Canal to the rugged spendour of Mow Cop and the Cloud, the walks offer countless photo opportunities.
