Sponsored walk for MNDA

Following the Dalesway

Back in 2016 I organised a sponsored walk to raise money for MNDA after one of my friends was diagnosed with MND. This incurable disease has had devastating consequences for so many families so I wanted to show my support in a constructive way. Myself and 30 others did a sponsored walk from Ilkley along the Dalesway to Grassington covering 20 miles. We raised over £2200 which was an overwhelming amount of money.

The Dalesway public footpath runs from Ilkley right through to the Lake District. It is 80 miles long and runs through some seriously stunning scenery along its route.

The route we took was lovely covering some of the best walking areas locally. The River Wharfe is a great spot to focus on when planning a walk with so many to choose from:

  • Ilkley to Addingham
  • Addingham to Bolton Abbey
  • Bolton Abbey
  • Barden to Burnsall
  • Burnsall to Hebden
  • Hebden to Grassington
