Walkers from Bailiff Bridge trekked along the Calderdale Way, raising over £1,200 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Joanne Love, who works for BASF in Low Moor, took part in the walk challenge with her daughter Katie, sister Jayne March and friend Lucy Taylor.

The walk was completed in three stages, starting and finishing at Bailiff Bridge, and took in some of the breathtaking and challenging hills of Calderdale.

Joanne, site communicator at BASF performance products in Bradford, said: “Following a holiday walking in the Lake District I started to look for local walks and discovered that the Calderdale Way passed right by my house.

“After mentioning to Lucy, Jayne and Katie we decided to take on the gruelling walk for BASF Bradford and Grimsby charity of the year, Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The walk was hard and we spent most of the middle stage in torrential rain, but it was well worth the effort and we are extremely proud of not only raising over £1,000 for this worthwhile charity, but also for completing the 50 miles.”

The Calderdale Way is a 50-mile footpath devised in the 1970s to draw attention to some of the attractions in the district of Calderdale.
