LL aboard for the Manch­ester Mid­night Walk in aid of St Ann’s Hospice thanks to the help of a lo­cal bus com­pany.

Manch­ester Com­mu­nity Trans­port (MCT) has put posters ad­ver­tis­ing the popular 10k walk on Fri­day, June 19, in its fleet of buses on routes across Greater Manch­ester.

Terry Crewe, MCT’s so­cial en­ter­prise manager, has per­sonal and pro­fes­sional rea­sons for want­ing to sup­port the char­ity.

Sis­ter Lynda Good­win, from Bred­bury, is coun­selling ser­vices co-or­di­na­tor at the hospice and their late fa­ther Roger was a pa­tient there in 1996.

Terry, from Tim­per­ley, said: “I know from ex­pe­ri­ence what a valu­able ser­vice St Ann’s Hospice pro­vides for the com­mu­nity.

“MCT is a not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion also serv­ing the com­mu­nity so we’re de­lighted we can sup­port such a de­serv­ing wellestab­lished char­ity.”

More than 2,000 walk­ers are ex­pected to pack a route which starts from Manch­ester Cen­tral.

En­try is £20; £15 for past walk­ers and £10 if aged 11 to 17. To reg­is­ter go to www.mmwalk.org. uk or call the St Ann’s fundrais­ing team on 0161 498 3631.
