    Active Cheshire is thrilled to announce the launch of PlayFest 2018 - a spectacular event inspiring businesses, schools and communities to get together, compete, get active, play, and have fun.

    This major event will take place on Saturday 12th May 2018 at Cheshire’s prestigious Tatton Park.

    Every ticket sold will raise funds to support the work of one of the country’s best loved charities; the British Red Cross.

    The event offers a full day of activities from 9am-4pm centred around the Play to Win Competition Zone, where more than 1000 competitors will release their inner child, as they race on the world’s longest inflatable assault course – at over 1000ft long!

    PlayFest 2018 will not only provide an opportunity for teams to showcase their physical prowess and build team spirit, but also to raise funds for a great cause.

    Active Cheshire CEO, Anne Boyd said “We are delighted to announce launch of PlayFest 2018, which will celebrate the importance of active play – at home, in community and of course, in the workplace.” Anne continues, “With increasing concerns relating to sedentary lifestyles and huge decline in physical activity within the workplace, PlayFest 2018 is all about encouraging participants to play together and get active in a fun way.”

    Early bird tickets prices are available now at just £280 per team of 8 people – that’s just £35pp incl vat (which includes a donation to the British Red Cross, support from the Active Cheshire Team and a Competition Pack for all entrants). Please note that parking will be charged separately by the venue.

    Team spots are limited, so if you want to secure your place to be recognised as Cheshire & Warrington’s most Active Workplace. Call Fraser now on 01606 330212 or visit www.activecheshire.org/playfest

    Appeal for walkers to take on Macclesfield challenge for children’s hospice

    Walkers are being asked to pull on their boots to tackle the three highest peaks of Macclesfield to raise funds for Francis House Children’s Hospice.

    A choice of two routes is on offer, both starting from Tegg’s Nose Country Park. The strenuous 13.6 mile route, with a walking time of approximately six hours, takes in the famous Cheshire Three Peaks of Macclesfield - Tegg’s Nose, Shutlingsloe and Shining Tor.

    Winding through the scenic Macclesfield countryside, the walk encompasses Trentabank and Lamaload Reservoir and offers gorgeous views from all three summits. The route covers steep terrain and requires a good level of fitness.

    Maps are provided and flags direct walkers across the hillsides and forests, with checkpoints providing water and fruit for tired limbs.

    Organisers Francis House Children’s Hospice, provides respite care to children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and support for their families from its base in Didsbury, Manchester.

    More than 130 people participated in the event last year, with the option of a shorter 6.5 mile walk through woodland and moorland. The children’s hospice is keen that families and schools sign up to take part this year. The shorter walk is nonetheless challenging and is not suitable for pushchairs.

    Last year’s event raised over £14,300 and proved popular with many businesses entering teams.

    The Francis House Cheshire Three Peaks Walk takes place on Sunday June 10.

    Registration fees apply. Anyone wishing to register can visit www.francishouse.org.uk/cheshire-three-peaks/ or call Francis House on 0161 443 2200.
