Join us for our annual Pendle Pub Walk, kindly sponsored by Alderson and Horan Funeral Service, around the stunning Pendle countryside using its finest hostelries as way-points!
The walk, which is organised by Pendleside Hospice and Burnley Pendleside Rotary Club, raises money for Pendleside, with £5 of each registration fee going to other local charities who are supported by the Rotary Club. This year it is expected that over 2,000 walkers will take part in the 10-mile walk (approx), which is made up of a combination of countryside and road-walking. The walk is a circular route through some of Pendle’s most scenic countryside including Fence, Barley, Roughlee, Blacko, Higherford and Barrowford. Along the route there will be official venues for you to purchase refreshments and live entertainment.
Once again, it is going to have two starting points, so walkers (and their dogs!) can choose to set off from the Village Hall in Barley, with The Pendle Inn as the first pub en-route, or from The Sparrowhawk in Fence. Walkers are asked to start from their chosen point between 10am-12 noon - if between registering and the event you change your mind about where you would like to start contact Fundraising on 01282 440120 to inform us.
Registration is £20 for adults and £10 for children. As this event is organised to raise much-needed funds for Pendleside Hospice we ask that all participants gain sponsorship or make a minimum donation of £30 at the time of registering (for guidance: £20 registration, plus £30 minimum donation). If you opt to raise sponsorship you are not committing to a minimum donation, we just ask that you raise as much as possible. On the day registrations will increase to £50 for adults as it is assumed walkers will not be collecting sponsorship money, therefore will include a donation. Pre-registrations will close at 10am on Tuesday 14th September.
Please note that your registration fee only covers the cost of the event. This includes a £5 donation to Rotary Club charities, your t-shirt, sponsor pack including postage and packaging and other event costs such as promotion, administration and processing etc. Therefore, Pendleside Hospice encourages you to raise as much sponsorship as possible or make a personal donation to help towards caring for your friends, family and neighbours.

IF YOU ARE REGISTERING A GROUP OF WALKERS ENSURE YOU REGISTER EACH PERSON USING THEIR INDIVIDUAL DETAILS (EG ADDRESS, CONTACT NUMBER) OTHERWISE YOUR REGISTRATIONS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
Once you have registered it is time to fundraise!
The registration fee covers the cost of the event and any additional sponsorship raised goes directly towards the vital care provided by the Hospice. We ask each individual to raise an additional minimum sponsorship of £30 to help us to continue supporting those in our local community! You will receive a sponsorship pack to help you with your fundraising.
A great way of raising donations is to set up a JustGiving page or a Facebook fundraising page.
One of the easiest ways to raise sponsorship is to start your own JustGiving page in aid of Pendleside Hospice and share the link with your friends and family so they can sponsor you to complete the walk and make donations to support your cause.

Facebook is a fantastic way to raise money, you just start the fundraiser in aid of the Hospice and share it with your friends… It is really that easy!
Just make sure that you include Pendle Pub Walk in the title so we can keep track of your fundraising page!
Don’t worry if technology isn’t for you, you can use our sponsorship form to collect cash donations. You will receive this in your sponsorship pack.
