WALKERS taking part in a charity coastal trek will have an extra incentive to raise as much money as possible — free Bestival tickets.
The tickets will be awarded to the person who raises the most sponsorship in Breathe Easy’s walk around the Isle of Wight, which starts later this month.
Bestival curator, Rob da Bank, donated two tickets, worth £400, to the charity, which offers help and advice to people with a respiratory problem, from childhood asthma to more serious diseases, such as emphysema.
The walk, spread over six days and two weekends, between March 29 and 31 and April 5 and 7, starts at 10am each day, and the actual mileage covered is up to each individual.
Entry forms and further details can be found at the customer service desk at Sainsbury’s in Newport.
Breathe Easy is Sainsbury’s charity for the year and some of its staff will be taking part in the walk.
The Breathe Easy social group meets every second Friday at 2pm in the respiratory department of St Mary’s Hospital.
All money raised will be used to buy equipment for the department.
Donations can be sent to Andy Savage at the respiratory department and cheques should be made out to 'Breathe Easy Isle of Wight’.
