TEAM EG COMPLETE BIG NHS WALK

A BIG shout out to all of the participants of Team EG in the Big NHS Walk this weekend!

Team EG successfully completed the 12 mile walk on Sunday 23rd alongside East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust staff and the local community. The day centred around a healthy challenge whilst raising as much money as possible for our local hospitals.

There were two routes: one beginning at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital (where Team EG started) and one at Burnley General Teaching Hospital. The two routes took walkers through some of the best countryside that the area has to offer and brought them to a single point so that everyone could finish the route together.

The day was a great success all round, and we’d like to give a huge thanks and congratulations to everyone that took part!
