Every year the team supports the Horwich New Heart Pike event which is a sponsored walk to raise funds for the Wythenshawe Hospital Transplant Fund. The team provides standby rescue cover for this event which traditionally has involved some walkers who have had heart surgery or suffered cardiac problems, in some years the event also attracts cardiac doctors and surgeons.
This year 21 team members were on hand to cover the event including many small parties of team members who throughout the afternoon of this event walked alongside the sponsored participants.
Thankfully the event (as ever) passed without incident and the rain kept off for the day.
