Doncaster rambles for Children in Need


Doncaster Ramblers have taken up the challenge from BBC Countryfile to ramble for Children in Need, this week.

The Ramblers were joined by MP Caroline Flint, ramblers and local residents for the five mile Tickhill Trek.

Said Caroline: “Congratulations to the Doncaster Ramblers for taking up the Countryfile challenge for Children in Need. I was delighted to be able to join them. The walk was led by Ramblers Chair David Gadd, who had an impressive knowledge of local history.”

Said Peter Rowsell of Doncaster Ramblers: “It was fantastic to have Caroline Flint and friends along for this walk. We could not have had a better day to raise money for Children in Need.”

The ramble route passed Eastfield Farm, where residents were harvesting pumpkins for Halloween; Stancil, the site of an ancient Roman villa; and the suspected location of the lost ancient village of Dadsley.

So far, the Tickhill Trek has raised £370, including money collected on the day. If you want to support Children in Need, you can donate at
