Rosemere’s ticket to ride from Redline

Preston bus company Redline has just the ticket for Rosemere Cancer Foundation – for the third year running, it is to provide a free shuttle service for those taking part in the charity’s annual, Eric Wright Group sponsored Walk in the Dark fundraiser.

The family-owned firm, founded by Shane and Rowena Nuttall in 1987, is donating three buses, which will ferry those wanting to park at the walk’s finish at Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital to its starting point 11 miles down the A6 at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital.

This year’s walk, the 11th in succession, takes place on Saturday, 27th April, starting at around 9 pm. Redline operations manager Richard Saunders, who is the Nuttalls’ son-in-law and who with wife Siobhan and a Redline team of six others completed last year’s Walk in the Dark, said: “We are expecting to transport between 200 to 250 walkers.

“We will have buses at the Royal Preston from 7 pm onwards, which will set out for Chorley as soon as they are full. It makes good sense for people to leave their cars at walk’s end.”

Walk in the Dark has been walked by more than 2,500 people from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria over its history, who have collectively raised just short of £300,000 through entry fees and sponsorship. This makes Walk in the Dark Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s single most important event in the charity’s year-long fundraising calendar.

Rebecca Hall, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s central area fundraising  co-ordinator, who is in charge of Walk in the Dark’s organisation, said: “We are extremely grateful to Redline for providing free transportation for our walkers. It’s very generous of the company to supply buses and drivers on a Saturday night.”
