CARE participants conquer the Peak District…


Notts County FC Football in the Community [FITC], along with many participants from the CARE (Cancer and Rehabilitation Exercise) project took on a picturesque 10k walk through some of the most breath-taking scenery the Peak District has to offer.

On Saturday 24th June, over 60 participants ranging from our most senior members being in their 80s with the youngest of rambler being just 2 years old. Accompanied by the group’s four-legged companions, FITC’s Senior Manager Tim Hatton and his FITC team safely navigated participants through stunning scenery, capturing the moment with some fantastic photos. Please tweet your photos and follow us on Instagram @NottsCountyFITC.

Everyone at FITC would like to thank Skills Coaches for their amazing generosity in donating a free return journey for the event and their superb on-board hospitality. Also a big thank you to our new community partners Nuffield Health Gym Nottingham as well as Thornbridge Brewery, Owl House Spa and The Bakewell Pudding Shop for their generous prize donations.

Partnership and Events Executive, James Bromley said: “It was amazing to see so many of our CARE participants on the Bakewell Ramble. With participants of all ages choosing to spend their day walking through the Peak District, we couldn’t have been in better company. We hope everyone enjoyed the ramble and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that took part.”

Tom Tarpey, CARE participant added: “To meet up with so many of the CARE men and women outside of the project was fantastic. The support the FITC staff give to every one of us is amazing! The fresh Peak District air and scenery was a weekend well spent and the money raised couldn’t have gone to a more worthy cause. To win the Ramble Quiz and win a Bakewell Pudding was quite literally the icing on the cake!”
