Golf club to walk Hadrian’s Wall
GOLFERS from Poynton will be tracing the famous Hadrian’s Wall for charity.
Calling themselves the Hadrian’s Hoofers, the 12 Davenport Golf Club members, are taking on the challenge to support the Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre.
The charity which links with Wythenshawe Hospital has supported Sam Robinson, the son of club captain Paul Robinson, who was born with the genetic condition.
The Hoofers will walk from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway over eight days covering a distance of 84 miles along the route of the famous Hadrian’s Wall built by the Romans in AD 122 for Emperor Hadrian.
The intrepid team have been preparing for their task with some arduous training, walking around Poynton and the adjoining countryside in a variety of weathers, to ensure they are at their peak of fitness.
Paul Robinson, Davenport Golf Club’s captain, said: “It’s a tough challenge with a walk of this length and variety of terrain but the Hoofers are determined to put in a top performance in aid of a great cause.”
