These red shoes are made for walking

Banbridge woman, Fionnuala Cook, is urging walkers of all fitness levels to don a pair of red shoes and take part in a ‘Red Shoe’ walk she has organised in aid of the Red Cross.

The walk will take place at Loughbrickland House on Wednesday June 18 during three time slots - 10-12am, 2-5pm and 7-9pm.

The entrance fee is £5 for adults, £2 for over-12’s and children free and will be donated to the Red Cross. Walkers are also encouraged to raise a small amount of sponsorship. Refreshments in the Gate Lodge following each session should encourage even the laziest of walkers to make it round the 45 minute trail, which boasts some beautiful views and historic raths.

“We are indebted to Mrs Jean Whyte for granting us the use of her marvellous grounds, and for agreeing to cut the ribbon to launch the first walk,” said Fionnuala, who is a Trustee of the British Red Cross.

“I hope many will turn out and help us raise much needed funds for vulnerable people in crisis right here in Northern Ireland. Walkers who don’t own a pair of red shoes already, will be provided with a set of red shoe covers.”
