Knaresborough Rotary Club’s recent Nidd Gorge Walk has raised more than £1,000 for Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Walkers enjoyed a lovely sunny day as they walked from the Rotary Wishing well on Knaresborough waterside on circular walks that included a visit to Mother Shipton’s cave.

Three different walks were available: a children’s walk of about two miles with an I-Spy quiz and prizes, a short walk of about four miles, suitable for all the family including dogs on leads, and a longer walk along the Nidd gorge of about eight miles.

President of Knaresborough Rotary Club, Richard Booth, said: “We are delighted once again to be supporting Martin House with the Nidd Gorge Charity Walk”.
