Get involved at Charity Challenge
WALKERS, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users have been signing up for the Examiner Charity Challenge next month.
And there's still room for more stalls at the event - sponsored by HSBC.
Over 1,000 participants - maybe even 2,000 - are set to gather at Meltham Sports and Community Centre in Mean Lane on Sunday, May 21.
For just £15, you can set up a stall - whether it's for charity, or simply commercial.
The challenge, staged with local Lions clubs, is set to benefit scores of local good causes.
Organiser Bob Armitage said: "Last year we had everything from information stalls to books and toys.
"Though our participants will be out and about in the local countryside, most routes only take an hour or three to complete, so they're back at Mean Lane with plenty of time to relax and browse.
"We'd love to welcome more fun activities for children to get involved in, such as face painting.
"As the Charity Challenge continues to grow, we want to create extra attractions back at our base."
Any sort of stall is encouraged, except for food - Meltham Cricket Club is providing breakfast sandwiches and a lunchtime barbecue.
Stallholders need to bring their own tables, and can pay their fee on the day.
More volunteer marshals are also needed for the challenge - to look after outposts and cheer walkers and riders along.
Bob said: "We could do with a few extra people, if anyone wants to help us.
"It'll be good fun."
