THIS month 12 members of Davenport Golf Club will walk Hadrian’s Wall in support of the Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre, the club’s chosen charity for 2015.
The group, who’ve been named ‘Hadrian’s Hoofers’, will walk from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway, over eight days, covering a distance of 84 miles along the route of the famous 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.
Davenport captain Paul Robinson 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.”
