Free Radio to walk the Black Country

Free Radio will be hosting the Walk of the Black Country next weekend.

Last year, as Beacon Radio, the team raised over £100,000 for local charities with 3,500 walkers taking part.

The Walk is a 10 mile route from Himley Park to Wolverhampton Racecourse and is hoping to raise thousands of pounds for Promise Dreams – a Wolverhampton based charity dedicated to realising the dreams of seriously and terminally ill children, with a percentage of funds going to the Dudley and Wolverhampton Mayoral charities.

Free Radio Managing Director Matt Ramsbottom said ‘Last year’s Walk of the Black Country was an incredible day, this year we hope many more people will join us and with another big effort, we’ll do even better and raise thousands more for Promise Dreams.’

The event will be kicked off by Free Radio breakfast show presenters Fresh & Emma, with Promise Dreams patrons Beverley Knight and Steve Bull on stage.

Beverley Bird Charity Manager at Promise Dreams added: “We’re so pleased to be part of this event once again and although 10 miles is a challenge, it’s certainly achievable having seen the success of last year. I’m sure that the Free Radio team will keep everyone going and we look forward to seeing everyone on the day – let’s hope for sunshine!”
