A father of three is going to Trek to Burma to raise money for Keech Hospice Care in November.

Cliff Lath, 59, of Coltsfoot Green, is hoping to raise £3000 for the charity.

He said: “The Burma Trek is something I have always wanted to do so when the opportunity came up, I had to take it and it is for a great charity.

“The staff at Keech do a fantastic job and I have personal experience of how much they help, having lost my sister, mother and father within the last four years.

“They don’t get enough recognition and I think more people should get involved with fundraising.”

The Barton Supplies Limited owner has been practicing his walking on a machine and has just started to walk to work to get extra practice.

Mr Lath said: “It’s going to be tough, a lot of hiking every day, about 40KM, we will be trekking through villages and the wilderness for seven days.

“I am really looking forward to it, it will be a challenge but a worth while one.”

Mr Lath will also be holding a Country and Western night at Barton Rovers Football Club on Saturday, August 30, to raise money for the charity, tickets cost £10.
