Volunteers from Bury Samaritans walked the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) in July to raise funds for the much used local charity.
The volunteers walked through all six of Bury’s towns on the ‘Samarathon’ top raised funds, and also to raise awareness of the important work that the Samaritans do to support people in some of their most difficult times.
Bury Samaritans is the Mayoral Charity for the Mayor of Bury for 2020-21, Councillor Tim Pickstone. Tim joined the volunteers walking from Bury to Whitefield, Radcliffe and back to Bury.
You can still support the Samaritans for their walk here.
