Ian Swales MP and Cllr Eric Howden to host Memorial Walk

To mark the centenary of the First World War, Ian Swales MP and Redcar British Legion Chair, Cllr Eric Howden will be hosting a sponsored walk around the war memorials in Redcar Constituency on Saturday 14 June 2014. The Standard from the Legion will be carried and present at each memorial and a cross will be placed.

20 miles in total, the walk will begin in New Marske Church at 8.00am and end at Redcar Cenotaph around 5.30pm. All proceeds will go to the Redcar British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and Blind Veterans UK. 

Ian and Eric would love for people to join them on the walk for as much or little as they feel able.  Meeting points and a lunch stop have been arranged so that people can join at different stages of the walk or come along to make donations.
