Oldham's sponsored night walk for cancer support
Walking to remember, walking for loved ones and walking with friends.
Maggie's sponsored walk took participants to some of Oldham’s most interesting buildings, where the walkers experienced live entertainment, food and a taster of the programme of support offered in Maggie's Centres.
The walked started from Oldham Athletic's Event Centre at Boundary Park, after a long walk uphill from the Latics, the first stop was Tommyfield Chippy for a starter cone of Chips, then down to Annie Kenneys Statue outside the Old Town Hall for a presentation by Amy Gavin who played the Suffagette, Annie in BBC’s 'The Suffragettes' in 2018 and also at the unveiling of the statue in December that year.
From the statue the walkers proceeded to George Street Chapel for Yoga and tea, after which, stretched and invigorated they headed to Cafe Lahore on Union Street where they were presented with containers of Vegetable Biriyani to take on their way. The next stop was Oldham Parish Church where they were entertained by Rock Choir and toured the crypt - then to Oldham Central Mosque on Featherstall Road for a tour, talk and Samosa with Mufti Mahmood Helal of Oldham Interfaith Forum and Abdul Karim, Secretary of the Mosque.
The walkconcluded at Maggie’s Oldham with cakes, tea and fizz with entertainment from Barnhowlers Ukelele Band.
