Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

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.”
